Timothy Spall as Turner at Cannes
“Mr Turner” is a British film showing at Cannes 2014 and featuring Timothy Spall as the artist JMW Turner.
Mike Leigh’s first period biopic in 15 years is a feat of confidence, with an outstanding performance from Spall as the Romantic landscape artist.
Says the Guardian, “What a glorious film this is, richly and immediately enjoyable, hitting its satisfying stride straight away.”
Let’s hope come May 24th it will have picked up an award or two for Leigh, Spall and company.
