Academy Award Nominee Julian Schnabel’s At Eternity’s Gate is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite scepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh’s letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented.
Starring Willem Dafoe, Rupert Friend, Oscar Isaac, Mads Mikkelsen

“Abstract, meditative, dreamily surreal: much less a traditional biopic than an evocative series of scenes and images rooted in Willem Dafoe’s fevered, close-to-the-bone performance.” – Entertainment Weekly
“Any film could give you the gist of Van Gogh’s life story, but perhaps only this one can make you feel what it would be like to stand in a field with this brilliant mind, and watch him make magic out of scenery.” – TheWrap
AT ETERNITY’S GATE is rated 12A. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
