The Eye of the Storm movie

 

January 15th, 2012, Hollywood, CA – Sycamore Entertainment Group Inc. (SEGI), is pleased to announce it has acquired US rights to the Fred Schepisi film THE EYE OF THE STORM, starring Academy Award-winner® Geoffrey Rush ("The Kings' Speech", "Pirates of the Caribbean" ), Charlotte Rampling ("The Swimming Pool", "Melancholia") and Golden Globe® nominee Judy Davis ("Barton Fink" & Woody Allen's upcoming "Nero Fiddled").

 

The screen play adaptation by Judy Morris is based on the 1973 literary classic by Australia's only Nobel Prize-winner for Literature, Patrick White. THE EYE OF THE STORM is a savage exploration of the family relationships — and the sharp undercurrents of love and hate, comedy and tragedy - which define them.

 

CEO Edward Sylvan with the help of the hard working team at Sycamore, started the company to maximize the potential for hybrid P&A and full service distribution deals, which allows the firm to be aggressive and flexible at a time when the industry is showing signs of recovery from the 2008 economic malaise.

 

Part of the companies' strategy is to offer institutional investors a high degree of transparency and access to Print & Advertising (P&A) investments, which have the potential of quicker returns with more mitigated risk.

 

"Working with investment banks and institutional investors, levels the playing field and allows Sycamore to aggressively compete with some of the larger more established film distributors," says Sylvan, who recently moved the company's offices to Paramount Picture Studios.

Sylvan negotiated the deal with Robbie Little of The Little Film Company, which handles world sales for the film. Financed by the Australia Broadcasting Corporation, Screen Australia, Film Victoria, Ingenious and Omnilab; Produced by Antony Waddington, Gregory Read and Fred Schepisi; Executive Producers, Jonathan Shteinman, Edward Simpson, Bob Marcs and James Vernon.

 

"I am delighted to be working with Sycamore to bring this wonderful film, from the hand of maestro director Fred Schepisi, to US audiences" says Geoffrey Rush.

 

"We are excited to be working with master filmmaker Fred Schepisi and the sublime Geoffrey Rush on this star-studded drama." says Sylvan. "It did very well at TIFF where it premiered and the trade reviews raved about the film's stellar acting performances, which are sure to delight audiences this spring."

 

THE EYE OF THE STORM won The Age Critics' Award at the Melbourne International Film Festival and the Premiere Special Jury Prize at the Rome Film Festival, and dominates the acting categories of the upcoming Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) awards, for which it received twelve (12) nominations. The winners will be announced on January 31, 2012. Sycamore is scheduled to release THE EYE OF THE STORM April 20th, 2012.
