(2018. UK/US 1 hr, 41 min. Directed by Julian Schnabel. R.) H&R Block Ellsworth sponsors this riveting portrait of the last days of a genius, featuring a 2019 Oscar-nominated performance from Willem Dafoe. The film is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite skepticism, ridicule, and illness, created some of the world's most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh's (Dafoe, in a performance nominated for this year’s Best Actor Oscar) letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented. With Oscar Isaac, Mads Mikkelsen and Mathieu Amalric.
$8 Adults, $7 Seniors/Students, $6 Grand Members/Matinee General Admission.
