Directed by Jane Campion
Oscar-winning performance as a mute woman dedicated to her music takes
center stage in this lush drama set in 19th century New Zealand. Harvey
Keitel co-stars as the brutish but sensitive man who gives her back what
seemed irrevocably lost. A young Anna Paquin more than holds her own with
a performance that garnered this new star an Oscar for Best Supporting
Actress. 121 minutes.
