Widely regarded as one of the best British films of 2014, BAFTA nominated Mr Turner comes to Blu-ray and DVD on 2nd March and is available for pre-order now. Directed by Mike Leigh, Mr. Turner charmed Britain’s audiences on its cinematic release, with an engrossing, emotional yet turbulent window into the life of one of history’s greatest Britons.
A stunning and beautiful ﬁlm, Mr. Turner tells the extraordinary story of Britain’s greatest ever artist. As Turner (Timothy Spall – The King’s Speech) produces masterpieces ahead of his time that challenge the art world, so he has to confront his own ever changing circumstances and deal with love and loss.
Dorothy Atkinson (Call the Midwife) and Marion Bailey (Vera Drake) play the women of Turner’s affections, while Joshua McGuire (About Time) gives a sterling performance as famed art critic John Ruskin. Lesley Manville (Another Year) also appears as Scottish science writer Mary Somerville. With cinematography as beautiful as Turner’s art, the film captures Turner’s masterful use of light and replicates some of his finest paintings on screen.
Spall’s Turner has attracted widespread acclaim; Spall has already won numerous international accolades, garnering awards for best actor from Cannes, The National Society of Film Critics, The European Film Awards and the New York Film Critic’s Circle Awards.
An essential addition to the collection of fans of British cinema at its best, Mr. Turner is a visually stunning and touching portrayal of one of the nation’s most loved artists.
