Mr. Turner


Mr. Turner
Mike Leigh's latest is one of those films that appeals to the critics while boring many other viewers, despite a string of awards and nominations. In essence a biopic of the last 25 years of British artist J.M.W. Turner's life, after the death of his father, which affected him greatly. He has relationships with his housekeeper and a seaside landlady, while he travels, paints and generally manages to do what celebrities have always done: be celebrated by some elements of society, and reviled by others.

150 minutes.
