Film: The Piano

Sat 7 Jul | 2.00pm

Under the pretence of piano lessons, she strikes up a very different relationship with Alistair’s overseer, George Baines (Harvey Keitel). The film was awarded the Palme d’Or at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival, making Jane Campion the first woman to win the festival’s highest honour.
