DIRECTOR Justin Chadwick
CAST Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, Holliday Grainger, Judi Dench
Alicia Vikander leads a superb cast in this lavish adaptation of Deborah Moggach’s novel set in 17th-century Amsterdam.
In 1634, while all Amsterdam is madly speculating on exotic tulip bulbs from the East, a poor but beautiful orphan (Alicia Vikander) is forced to marry a rich man (Christoph Waltz) but falls in love with the young painter commissioned to paint her portrait (Dane DeHaan). With a screenplay by Tom Stoppard and Deborah Moggach from her novel, this is a lush, colourful and handsomely mounted piece stuffed with great actors.
