Twenty years after discovering gold in the Canadian wilderness, Jack McCann (Gene Hackman, The Royal Tennenbaums) is a reclusive multi-millionaire living on his own Caribbean island with his alcoholic wife and troubled daughter. But his paradise haven is threatened by mobsters who want to build a casino on his land. Directed by multi-award winning film-maker Nicolas Roeg (Performance, Don’t Look Now), Eureka features an all star cast including Mickey Rourke, Joe Pesci, Theresa Russell and Rutger Hauer. Loosely based on the true story of Sir Harry Oakes, the film is a kaleidoscopic tale of money, violence and obsession. With an expertly-crafted script by Paul Mayersberg (Croupier, The Man Who Fell To Earth) and spell-binding cinematography, Eureka is beautiful and captivating in equal measure. An unmissable gem.
