John Hurt's Patron's Pick: Big Eyes - Sunday 1:30pm The Alhambra

Unfortunately John Hurt can't make to Keswick this year so we asked if he'd like to choose a film to show at the festival. He's selected Big Eyes, a Tim Burton film that he feels has been unkindly reviewed and is keen to promote. John will be introducing it briefly via video from Serbia where he is currently working.

Big Eyes tells the outrageous true story of one of the most epic art frauds in history. In the 1960s, painter Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz) had reached success beyond belief, revolutionizing the commercialization of popular art with enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The bizarre and shocking truth would eventually be discovered: Walter’s works were actually created by his wife Margaret (Amy Adams). The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a colossal lie that had fooled the entire world.

Please note that this now means that White Shadow will be showing at The Theatre By The Lake at 1pm
