Mr. Turner is not for everyone

5 second plot: The 'older' years of the famous painter J.M.W. Turner. Apparently a very smart, very creative and quite down to earth fella who traveled a lot and had himself some great adventures.

5 second review: This is definitely the performance of a lifetime for Timothy Spall. What an amazing actor. And what an amazing movie: great sets and costumes, beautifully shot, pausing from time to time to show us an image that will become a famous painting. There is a lot to be seen so keep your eyes open. It's not a movie for everyone. Turner is a bit eccentric and he meets lots of eccentric people. If you're not into that, I would pass on this one.

IMDb score: 7/10
