Dir: Tim Burton | USA | 2014 | Run time tbc
Cast | Amy Adams, Krysten Ritter, Christoph Waltz

Tim Burton’s latest, a hugely enjoyable, kookily framed biopic, stars Amy Adams (American Hustle) as 20th century artist Margaret Keane, whose trademark canvases – usually depicting children with huge, doe eyes – were fraudulently claimed by her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz) as his own work in the 50s and 60s. Growing in popularity, he becomes a minor celebrity and appears on TV talk shows and in the press; all the while Margaret gets no attention at all… The ruse puts heavy pressure on their marriage, and before long they’re headed for court. Filmed with Burton’s trademark wit and weirdness, Big Eyes is a very entertaining watch.
