  • Two compulsive gamblers--one a devoutly religious minister's son, the other the gutsy proprietress of a glassworks--meet aboard a ship, united by their passion for taking risks and doing the impossible. And when he hatches a truly mad plan--to build an intricate cathedral out of glass and transport it to the wobegon Australian outback--the two wager on it, but they don't bet on falling in love. A lyrically photographed adaptation of the novel by Peter Carey. Academy Award Nominations: Best Costume Design (Janet Patterson).

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Fiennes and Blanchett cast a spell....An enthralling romantic fable about faith, love and other games of chance..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...Always a sensitive director, Armstrong does justice both to the novel's strange, poetic detail and to its emotional range..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...The film's most extraordinary aspect is its wonderfully luxuriant look....It offers a steady supply of visual surprises within compositions quite suitable for framing..."
    New York Times

    "...A love story of enchantment....Here there is a dry wit, generated between the well-balanced performances of Fiennes and Blanchett, who seem quietly delighted to be playing two such rich characters..."
    Chicago Sun-Times
