From personal experience, I see that when someone gets married and/or has kids, they wind up gaining a whole new set of friends – people that they might otherwise have never met, or even liked.
When Alex and Emily, a thirtysomething couple with a pre-school aged son, RJ, move from Seattle to Los, RJ makes friends with another boy at a park near their new home. They are approached by the other boy’s father, Kurt (Jason Scwartzman) and find themselves invited to dinner – pizza – that night. Even though they’re not sure what to make of Kurt, with his hipster style and unhipster demeanor, they accept.
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.
