Body

Jane Campion became the first woman director to win the Palme d’Or for this extraordinary, triumphant masterpiece about a mute woman’s rebellion in a newly colonised, Victorian-era New Zealand. Soundtracked by Michael Nyman’s evocative score, it won Oscars for Holly Hunter and Anna Paquin in career-defining roles and also Best Screenplay for Campion’s typically individualistic, female-centric script. Hunter - who played the piano pieces herself and tutored co-star Paquin on sign language - gives a majestic silent performance as Ada McGrath, the mute Scotswoman and talented pianist who arrives with her strong-willed young daughter Flora (Paquin) in the New Zealand wilderness.

Screening from a new digital restoration.
