Desire. Obsession. Betrayal. This summer they’re in full bloom.


Tulip Fever
Hollywood rolls out a cautionary tale about the current Bitcoin craze, by looking at a similar event 400 years ago. Set in 17th century Amsterdam, a married woman begins a passionate affair with the artist hired to paint her portrait. At the same time her maid is also involved in her own romance. The lovers gamble on the booming market for tulip bulbs as a way to raise money to run away together.
