Directed by Peter Webber
Rated PG-13, 99 min.
This is an intelligent, visually ravishing adaptation of Tracey Chevalier?s best-selling novel about the Dutch master Vermeer and the model for one of his most famous paintings. The film beautifully evokes the world of Delft, Holland 340 years ago while carefully and delicately delineating the personal intrigues within Vermeer?s household. This sensual period piece stars Colin Firth and Scarlet Johansson (who is receiving rave reviews for her work in Lost in Translation) as the artist?s muse.
film of great beauty... it truly seems painted with light. - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
