Mr. Turner tells the story of J.M.W. Turner, the controversial and revolutionary painter. Following him to brothels, historical meetings and his sexual relationship with his housekeeper, this biopic skips the typical notes of the average biography and delves deeper into the psychology of a deeply flawed but brilliant man. With some of the finest cinematography and costume design of the year, Mr. Turner will please historical drama fans as well as those with an artist's eye.
