Plot: In Tim Burton's Big Eyes, Amy Adams plays painter Margaret Keane whose (rather scary!) pictures of wide eyed waif-like children became super popular in the 1960s - unfortunately her husband Walter took all of the credit for them.
Guest appearances: Jason Schwartzman is funny as the snide gallery owner across the road who looks down on Keane's paintings as very low-brow...(and er, who could blame him?)
Watch this if you're a fan of... This film wasn't overly 'Burton-esque' - (which was a good thing for me as I had got rather sick of seeing Helena Bonham Carter & Johnny Depp dominate his work!) but has been called his best film since Ed Wood.
Overall: I really enjoyed Big Eyes - even if I can't quite make my mind up about Amy Adams, she was very strong as the lead. Christoph Waltz provided a lot of funny moments. The film did make me wonder how Keane let the charade play out for SO long though!
PS I have started a goal of seeing one new film a week this year. I'm doing well so far... (I work in a cinema, so it should be easy right?!) We'll see how I do!
