Overview

In Holy Smoke, sisters Anna and Jane Campion have fashioned a novel of fierce originality. The story begins in late November 1998, with an Australian familys decision to rescue their daughter Ruth from the attentions of an Indian Guru. Feeling overwhelmed, they invest in the services of an American cult specialist, PJ Waters. Two days later, out in the Australian bush, the balance of power has slowly shifted between counselor and client. What starts as a spiritual struggle about the nature of belief becomes an erotic and disturbing tale of sexual obsession, forcing Ruth and PJ to explore a relationship neither had wanted to make.
