Tim Burton’s upcoming film, Big Eyes looks adorable and intense. It stars Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz with Krysten Ritter and Jason Schwartzman and I already think I am in love with it based on the trailer alone.
The film is based on a true story of real life married couple Margaret and Walter Keane. Margaret is the talent behind incredibly popular doe-eyed paintings in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Margaret struggles to gain recognition for her artistic talent while being the true creative force behind the paintings and Walter reaps the rewards of her work, claiming, “sadly, people don’t buy lady-art.”
If there is something Burton does really well in my opinion, it is making the 50’s and 60’s look amazing, and based on the trailer, he does it again. Adams looks phenomenal as Margaret already. There is a reason this movie is getting Oscar buzz three months before it has even been released.
Big Eyes releases on Christmas Day. You can watch the official trailer below:
