DirectorMike Leigh
CastDorothy Atkinson, Marion Bailey, Paul Jesson, Lesley Manville, Joshua McGuire, Martin Savage, Ruth Sheen, Timothy Spall
This biopic explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, until his death. Throughout his life, the popular - if anarchic - member of the Royal Academy of Arts travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.
