During a self-imposed exile in Arles, France, Vincent van Gogh develops his unique style of painting. While grappling with mental illness and a tumultuous friendship with Paul Gauguin, van Gogh begins to focus on his relationship with eternity rather than the pain his art causes him in the present.

Our take

Willem Dafoe followed his Best Actor prize at Venice with an Oscar® nomination for his magnificent performance as Vincent van Gogh in this impressionistic biopic. Beautifully directed by Julian Schnabel, At Eternity’s Gate is an immersive portrait, not just of the artist, but his singular worldview.
