THE BANGER SISTERS

Academy Award-winner GEOFFREY RUSH plays the meticulous, neurotic Harry, who can only be released from his mental prison by the boundary-less Suzette.

Rush won the 1997 Best Actor Oscar and Golden Globe for his performance as the pianist David Helfgott in SHINE, which drew acclaim from critics and audiences around the world. In 2000, Rush was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA Award for his chilling portrayal of the Marquis de Sade in Fox Searchlight Pictures' QUILLS. He received Academy, Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations for Best Supporting Actor for his memorable portrayal of Henslowe in the Oscar-winning Best Picture of 1999 SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE. Also in 1999, Rush starred opposite Cate Blanchette in Shekar Kapur's ELIZABETH, for which he won a BAFTA Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role.

Rush's recent projects include LANTANA, John Boorman's THE TAILOR OF PANAMA, in which he starred opposite Pierce Brosnan, HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL and MYSTERY MEN. Additionally, he narrated Gillian Armstrong's OSCAR AND LUCINDA and played Inspector Javert in LES MISERABLES. In addition to THE BANGER SISTERS, in 2002 Rush will also appear in Julie Taymor's FRIDA, starring Salma Hayek and Alfred Molina. He recently completed production on the Coen Brothers' INTOLERABLE CRUELTY, in which he starred opposite George Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones. He is currently in production on Gore Verbinski's THE PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN, in which he stars with Johnny Depp.

An acclaimed and distinguished stage actor, Rush's career has spanned more than 70 theatrical productions. He began by studying mime, movement and theater in Paris in the 1970s, returning to his native Australia to play the fool in Warren Mitchell's "King Lear" and starring with the young Mel Gibson in "Waiting for Godot." He then joined Jim Sharman's Lighthouse ensemble company, playing many classic roles throughout the early 80s. Rush went on to star in several acclaimed Australian feature film productions, including Gillian Armstrong's STARSTRUCK, Neil Armfield's TWELFTH NIGHT, George Whaley's ON OUR SELECTION and CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION starring Judy Davis and Sam Neill.
