Cinematique Presents "Big Eyes"

Jan 27, 2015

Directed and produced by the legendary Tim Burton, BIG EYES is a timeless biopic based on the story of Walter Keane (Cristoph Waltz), a wildly successful artist whose heyday was in the 1950's and 60's. Keane revolutionized popular art with his entrancing paintings of waifs with big eyes. After years of being the front man for this widely adored collection, the truth comes out. Keane's art has never been created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret (Amy Adams in a Golden Globe Best Actress award-winning performance). Don't miss this thought-provoking, well-acted and refreshing film as it follows this mysterious couple through their struggles with marriage, fame, and a fib so big it  threatens to consume them both. (PG-13, 1 hr 46 min)
