Written and directed by film legend Mike Leigh and starring English character actor Timothy Spall in the title role, Mr Turner is a stunning biopic set in 19th century England.
Mr Turner explores the last quarter century of the great — if eccentric — British painter, JMW Turner (1775-1851).
Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies.
Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, 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.
Starring Timothy Spall, Jamie Thomas King, Roger Ashton-Griffiths and Robert Portal, Mr Turner is in cinemas from Friday December 26. Thanks to Transmission Films, we’ve got 20 in-season double passes to give away!
