    Big Eyes (2014)
    Directed by Tim Burton
    This is a drama about the awakening of the painter Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), her phenomenal success in the 1950s, and the subsequent legal difficulties she had with her husband (Christoph Waltz), who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s. It is a fairly straightforward movie but well crafted and perhaps Burtons best work behind Ed Wood. What is strange is that many elements of the true story were left out of the movie for fear of making the film too unbelievable.

    6.5/10
