The Piano

4

Ada McGrath (Holly Hunter), a mute Scottish woman who speaks through her piano is dispatched to New Zealand for arranged marriage with a local property tycoon (Sam Neill). Once there, Ada is pulled into a bizarre love affair with Baines (Harvey Keitel), an illiterate neighbour who has adopted the Maori culture. Director Jane Campion's mesmerising vision of the 19th-century wilderness is flawless.
