Big Eyes

Big Eyes

She created it. He sold it. And they bought it.
  • Red Riding Hood would be impressed.

This film is based on the true story of Walter Keane, who was one of the most successful painters of the 1950s and early 1960s. He earned staggering notoriety by revolutionizing the commercialization and accessibility of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The truth would eventually be discovered though: his art was actually not created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret. The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a lie that had grown to gigantic proportions. We focus on Margaret's awakening as an artist, the phenomenal success of her paintings, and her tumultuous relationship with her husband, who was catapulted to international fame while taking credit for her work.
