After a tragedy, John Ingram (Sam Neill) and his wife Rae (Nicole Kidman) are spending a vacation isolated at sea, where they come across a stranger (Billy Zane) who has abandoned a sinking ship. A wonderfully suspenceful plot, backed up by excellent performances and production, this psychological thriller was one of Kidman's last Australian films befor her career in the U.S. skyrocketed.
"Dead Calm is a nail-biting suspense pic [from the novel by Charles Williams] handsomely produced and inventively directed." - Variety
