Mr. Turner explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). “Moving, scholarly and serious as it is, Mr. Turner may be the most entertaining art biopic yet made – a grand canvas of inexhaustible riches.” - Jonathan Romney. Timothy Spall received the award for Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival. (English spoken)
