Big Eyes (Directed by Tim Burton; Written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski)
Starring: Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Krysten Ritter, Jason Schwartzman, Danny Huston, James Saito, Delaney Raye, Madeleine Arthur
Why I loved this film: I do not know enough about the real story on which this movie was based to tell whether this was a true statement, but I bought it. I really did!
Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz were believable, and I must say that I absolutely love Krysten Ritter, she is one of those actresses that leave you wandering whether she ever stops acting in real life.
I read an interview where the real Margaret Keane claimed that "Walter was a little crazier" in real-life, which would explain the court bit, since I found it hard to believe that anyone would act in such a way. That is the part where I doubted whether this was really based on real-life events as the guy seemed completely out of his mind!
Overall, I loved every minute of this film and it made me curious about the real-life story and those paintings. As soon as I got home I had to look it up on Google.
I highly recommend this movie!
