First female director to win a Palme d’Or in Cannes, Jane Campion sets her brooding and haunting drama in the brave new world of New Zealand in the mid-nineteenth century. Ada, a mute woman, lands with her daughter and beloved piano on unwelcoming shores to be wed to a stranger. She suffers torment and loss when her new husband sells her piano off to a neighbour, who offers a deal: she may earn back her piano by giving him piano lessons, but a sexual tension grows between them and long suppressed emotions come to the fore.
