Force of Destiny

Filmmaker Paul Cox had a second chance at life when he received a liver transplant on Christmas Day 2009. This experience profoundly affected him and Force of Destiny, the first film in this new phase of his life, is his semi-autobiographical account.

"A moving love story with a sumptuous aesthetic. David Wenham (working with Cox again for the first time since Molokai: The Story of Father Damien) stars as Robert, a renowned sculptor who is diagnosed with cancer of the liver. While reeling from this news he meets Maya, an Indian marine biologist who comes from a different world, a different reality. Robert’s nightmares and passion for Maya intensify as he confronts the agony and ecstasy of finding a love that has evaded him his entire life just as his body is about to be taken from him. New hope comes when he’s placed on the transplant waiting list." (Melbourne International Film Festival)

That Robert is merely a spectator to them is part of the problem. The character is a vessel for a public health message... For all the worthiness of that message, Force of Destiny feels more earnest than some of the better PSAs, and just as literal-minded.
