Acclaimed director Mike Leigh presents Timothy Spall in a masterful performance as the British landscape painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), whose wealth of eccentricities – from frequent visits to brothels, to strapping himself to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm – makes him both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.
