Big Eyes (12A) is the Silver Screen showing at the Connaught Cinema on Monday April 13th. Tea and coffee are served at 10.30 am with the film starting at 11.00 am.
In the late 1950s and early ’60s, artist Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz) achieves unbelievable fame and success with portraits of saucer-eyed waifs. However, no one realizes that his wife, Margaret (Amy Adams), is the real painter behind the brush. Although Margaret is horrified to learn that Walter is passing off her work as his own, she is too meek to protest too loudly. It isn’t until the Keanes’ marriage comes to an end and a lawsuit follows that the truth finally comes to light.
Running time: 106 minutes.
Silver Screen is a diverse mixture of the best modern movies, foreign language films and vintage Hollywood cinema, screening every Monday morning.
All tickets are £4.00 including complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits.
