On this episode, the GeekScholars host a spoiler-free discussion and review of Big Eyes, a the true story of a painter, Margaret Keane played by Amy Adams, whose works of art become a beloved cultural phenomenon, but her husband steals the credit for them over the course of many years.
What to Watch This Weekend is a weekly podcast from GeekScholars Movie News. Each Friday, the GeekScholars present a spoiler-free review of a highly-acclaimed film that has just become available in the past week to watch by renting, streaming, or purchasing.
Big Eyes is not exactly the kind of movie you might expect from Tim Burton, being based on the true story of artist Margaret Keane (Amy Adams) who created the famous series of paintings of doe-eyed subjects and her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz), whose marketing savvy made them a phenomenon in the ‘50s and ‘60s.
With a filmography that has never slipped over into the normal, Big Eyes may be the most unexpected film of Burton’s career. It will open on December 25th. Check out the trailer after he jump.
