At Eternity’s Gate: dir Julian Schnabel (2018)
3 July @ 6.00 pm - 8.00 pmFree, but pre-register
Willem Dafoe is Van Gogh in this journey through the world and mind of a man who overcame scepticism, ridicule and illness to create some of the world’s best-loved paintings – not least The Dance Hall in Arles (1887) in Gallery 19. It covers the last few years of his life, notably his friendship with Gauguin, the ear business, and his death (which here is depicted as an accident from kids fooling around rather than suicide). Willem Dafoe is spectacularly good.
