In 17th-century Amsterdam, an orphaned girl (Alicia Vikander) is forcibly married to a rich and powerful merchant (Christoph Waltz). After her husband commissions a portrait, she begins a passionate affair with the painter (Dane DeHaan). The lovers risk everything and enter the frenzied tulip-bulb market, with the hope that the right bulb will make them a fortune and buy their freedom. The film also stars Dame Judi Dench and is based on the novel by Deborah Moggach. It is "rated R" and is 105 minutes. Viewers are invited to discuss the book and film after the screening.Return to previous page >>
