Last year's animated feature Loving Vincent gave audiences a taste of how beautiful and moving—and incredibly difficult—a Vincent Van Gogh biopic could be, but it also showed us that we desperately needed a live-action version in our lives.
And so director Julian Schnabel's At Eternity's Gate has some pretty high expectations to live up to. The movie, which will be released worldwide in November 2018, stars Willem Dafoe as the tortured and brilliant Van Gogh living his final years in the south of France.
"This is a film about painting and a painter and their relationship to infinity. It is told by a painter. It contains what I felt were essential moments in his life; this is not the official history—it’s my version. One that I hope could make you closer to him,” Schnabel told Access Hollywood.
At Eternity's also stars Oscar Isaacs as Van Gogh's friend and contemporary Paul Gauguin, Mads Mikkelsen as Van Gogh's priest, and Rupert Friend as Theo Van Gogh.
