Our take

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Firth star in this richly textured, Oscar®-nominated portrait of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. Inspired by the artist’s work, director Peter Webber and cinematographer Eduardo Serra gorgeously render each frame to craft an exceptionally stirring and immersive biopic.
