At Eternity’s Gate is a Julian Schnabel directed biography that takes us inside the world and mind of a person who, despite skepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art.
If you hadn’t already guessed based on the above picture, the artist in question is of course, Vincent van Gogh who’s played by Willem Dafoe. Also starring Mads Mikkelsen, Oscar Isaac and Rupert Friend, At Eternity’s Gate features scenes based on Van Gogh’s letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, as well as purely invented moments.
Other key cast includes Mathieu Amalric, Emmanuelle Seigner, Niels Arestrup…
This trailer reminds me so much of how painful the lives of many great artists often are. ‘Maybe God made me a painter for people who aren’t born yet.’ Such heartbreaking words because of all that it could possibly mean.
Definitely looking forward to this one and I’m quite sure that Dafoe and Mikkelsen will do a wonderful job in their roles.
At Eternity’s Gate release Dates: November 16th, 2018 (US)…
