★★★★ - Rolling Stone
Earning him an Oscar® nomination, Willem Dafoe is mesmerising as Vincent van Gogh and artist who despite skepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world's most beloved and stunning works of art.
Covering his time in Arles and Auvers-sur-Oise, we find a complex, troubled soul who is seeking a new visual language, while also struggling to make sense of himself and his connection to those around him, including Paul Gaugain (Oscar Isaac) and a confiding priest (Mads Mikkelsen).
This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh's letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay and moments that are just plain invented.
Shot with a painter’s eye, Director and Academy Award Nominee Julian Schnabel once again shows his talent for working with complex biography and the lives of artists as in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Basquiat.
This event is screened in Oscars and spaces are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
