Tulip Fever – (2017. UK. 1 hr, 47 min. Directed by Justin Chadwick. R.)
Adapted from Deborah Moggach’s international best-seller by playwright Tom Stoppard (“Shakespeare in Love”), the film begins in 17th Century Amsterdam, where an orphaned girl (Alicia Vikander) is forcibly married to a rich and powerful merchant (Christoph Waltz) – an unhappy “arrangement” that saves her from poverty. After her husband commissions a portrait, she begins a passionate affair with the painter (Dane DeHaan), a struggling young artist. Seeking to escape the merchant’s ever-reaching grasp, the lovers risk everything and enter the frenzied tulip bulb market, with the hope that the right bulb will make a fortune and buy their freedom. With Judi Dench, Cara Delevinge, Matthew Morrison, Tom Hollander and Zach Galifianakis.
