Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 01/22/1998
"...Fiennes and Blanchett cast a spell....An enthralling romantic fable about faith, love and other games of chance..."
Sight and Sound - 04/01/1998
"...Always a sensitive director, Armstrong does justice both to the novel's strange, poetic detail and to its emotional range..."
New York Times - 12/31/1997
"...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..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 01/23/1998
"...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..."

Product Description:

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).
