Oscar and Lucinda
(1997, 132 minutes)
Director: Gillian Armstrong
An unlikely pair of gamblers meet on a voyage from England to Australia. Lucinda Leplastrier, a young heiress, bets Oscar Hopkins, an Anglican priest, that he cannot transport a glass church from Sydney to an Outback settlement. This wager changes their lives forever. Based on Australian author Peter Carey's 1988 prize-winning novel, starring Cate Blanchett and Ralph Fiennes.
