Winner of 3 Oscars: a mute woman is sent to 1850s New Zealand along with her young daughter and prized piano for an arranged marriage to a wealthy landowner, but is soon lusted after by a local worker on the plantation.
The 19th century. Ada, a Scottish woman mute since childhood, leaves for New Zealand with her young, illegitimate daughter to marry a dour farmer. A gifted pianist, she gives lessons to an uneducated Englishman – and the scene is set for a passionate and sensual relationship. Showered with awards upon its release, The Piano remains a marvel of cinematic imagery.
