FILM PICK: "Loving Vincent"

Dear Gentle Readers,

If you haven't heard of the movie Loving Vincent, I want to encourage you to seek it out on video or wherever you stream your entertainment.
We'd read about this motion picture animation about the final days of Vincent Van Gogh, where each cell in the animation is an oil painting. We followed it's progress closely as it was seven years in the making. We were so excited to see it on the big screen, all 65,000 frames. But this world's first fully painted feature film never made it to a theater anywhere near us. So I bought it on Amazon for my husband's birthday.

It is absolutely wonderful. The casting is exceptional. Eleanor Tomlinson (Demelza on Poldark), Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn, Hanna, Lady Bird), and Douglas Booth to name a few. Even Aidan Turner (Ross Poldark) shows up as the Boatman. The artwork is breathtaking. And the music! 

It is the story of a letter Vincent Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo before he died The story, the cast, the music, and the wonderful paintings lift this feature film to a must-see masterpiece.

The postmaster in the little French village where Vincent was staying before his death mailed this letter twice, and twice it was returned. So the postmaster sent his son to personally deliver the letter to Theo.
