Big Eyes — Trailer Reaction/Review

by Ken B.

Call me a sucker for Oscar season-type movies, but I’m pretty excited to check this one out. Big Eyes, along with being the first Tim Burton film in recent memory not to feature a CGI or makeup-covered Johnny Depp or Helena Bonham-Carter, is based on the story of Margaret Keane, an artist known for her pictures of characters with big, round, oversized eyes. Starting in the 1960s, and for years after that, her husband Walter Keane passed off the paintings as his own work (“Sadly, people don’t buy lady art”, a line in the trailer says). The film is set to focus on this story, and the ensuing divorce between the two.

Margaret and Walter Keane will be portrayed by Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz, respectively, two great actors working right now. The supporting cast will be filled out by Krysten Ritter, Jason Schwartzman, Danny Huston, and Terence Stamp, among others. It’s quite likely I will review Big Eyes at some point or another — this is a solid looking movie with an enticing trailer.

Big Eyes will be released in the United States on December 25, 2014.
