Ada (Holly Hunter), her nine year old daughter (Anna Paquin) and her piano arrive to an arranged marriage in the remote bush of Nineteenth Century New Zealand. Of all her belongings her husband (Sam Neill) refuses to transport the piano and its left behind on the beach. Unable to bear its certain destruction, Ada strikes a bargain with an illiterate tattooed neighbour (Harvey Keitel). She may earn her piano back if she allows him to do certain things while she plays; one black key for a lesson. The arrangement draws all three deeper into a complex emotional, sexual bond remarkable for imaginative passion and frightening disregard for limits. Triple Oscar winner: Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Screenplay.
