Mr. Turner

Mike Leigh's recent film about the great painter

Mr Turner

Mike Leigh 2014, UK, 140 mins.

This individual, slightly quirky film looks at Turner’s personality and relationships without going into detail on his art. It’s not a full biography but aims to give us an impression of the man by showing a series of episodes in his life, which it does very effectively. A film made with utter integrity by Mike Leigh (of Abigail’s Party and Nuts in May fame) with very good acting, not just from Timothy Spall as Turner.
