Based on the novel by celebrated author Deborah Moggach (These Foolish Things), Tulip Fever tells the tale of a torrid romance between a painter and a beautiful, young married woman at the height of tulip mania in 17th-century Amsterdam. Director Justin Chadwick once again employs his masterful eye for detail to bring this period drama to vivid life.
When wealthy merchant Cornelis (Christoph Waltz) commissions a portrait of his beautiful wife Sophia (Alicia Vikander), an irrepressible passion begins to bloom between Sophia and the talented young artist (Dane DeHaan) hired to commit her beauty to canvas. The young star-crossed lovers hinge their future together on an investment in the risky tulip market, tensions build and deceptions abound as the stakes grow higher.
Beautifully shot in muted palettes reminiscent of Vermeer, Tulip Fever features quietly powerful performances from its two leads, as well as another wonderfully ominous turn from the Academy Award–winning Waltz. Dame Judi Dench also brings her infamously dry wit to the role of a surprisingly cheeky abbess.
