The biopic of the British painter is due for release this October.

Mr Turner

Timothy Spall stars in the biopic Mr Turner by acclaimed filmmaker Mike Leigh.

Mr Turner tells the story of British painter JMW Turner (Spall) and explores the last quarter century of the eccentric character. The synopsis for the movie is:

Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies.

Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.

Lesley Manville, Marion Bailey, Dorothy Atkinson and Paul Jesson all co-star. Mr Turner will be released in UK cinemas on 31st October.
