AT ETERNITY'S GATE
Feb 5 - 7
Artist Julian Schnabel's (Basquiat) fifth feature is a fascinating and transporting portrait of Vincent van Gogh (Willem Dafoe, winner of the best actor award at Venice Film Fest). This intimate exploration of the tortured artist's final and prolific years mostly in Arles, Provence is seen episodically based on the letters he sent to his brother and patron Theo (Rupert Friend) and his friend Paul Gauguin (Oscar Isaac). Exploring the mystery of creativity this is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who despite skepticism, ridicule and illness created some of the world's most beautiful works of art.
