Critically acclaimed filmmaker and Film Circuit favourite Mike Leigh (Another Year, Happy-Go-Lucky) makes a triumphant return to the screen with Mr. Turner, a masterful portrait of the renowned English painter J.M.W. Turner. Leigh’s long-time collaborator Timothy Spall (The Love Punch, the Harry Potter series) won the Best Actor prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival as the cantankerous Turner, whose brilliance with the brush overshadows his sometimes appalling lack of social graces. Centering on the later years of Turner’s life, the film opens as the painter returns from an expedition to Belgium and attempts to settle back into his previous lifestyle.
