Girl with a Pearl Ear­ring

TV & Satellite Week - - Film Finder -

AMC HD, 9pm

Sex ●●● Vi­o­lence ●●● Language ●●● Based on the cel­e­brated novel by Tracy Che­va­lier, this is a sump­tu­ous ru­mi­na­tion on the events that might have led the Dutch artist Jo­hannes Ver­meer (Colin Firth) to paint his cel­e­brated mas­ter­piece of the ti­tle. The film beau­ti­fully re­cap­tures Ver­meer’s mas­ter­ful use of light, colour and tex­ture, in­fus­ing the story with a sub­tle eroti­cism, and Scar­lett Jo­hans­son is ex­traor­di­nar­ily ef­fec­tive in a role that gives her min­i­mal di­a­logue with which to work, and which only once al­lows her to let her hair down. 2003, 12, 100MIN

COLIN WAS ONLY TOO PLEASED TO HELP SCAR­LETT FIND HER EAR­RING
