Mr. Turner 12A

Part of Mike Leigh in Conversation. United Kingdom, 2014, Mike Leigh, 150m.

Mike Leigh’s exultant cinematic portrait of the artist J.M.W. Turner is both a luminous tribute to the master of light and a fascinating, meticulous character study of a man who attained greatness whilst resisting the art-world conventions of his time. Eschewing the traditional temporal form of the biopic, Leigh focuses on Turner as a complex yet passionate eccentric and traces the last 25 years of his life when his painting was transitioning from representation to the more atmospheric, impressionist work for which he is renowned.

Timothy Spall, Dorothy Atkinson, Marion Bailey, Paul Jesson
