A Complex Character 

When: Fri., May 1 2015
British painter J. M. W. Turner was a complex character. One art critic described him as an artist who could most "stirringly and truthfully measure the moods of Nature." In Mr. Turner, veteran British director and writer Mike Leigh (Secrets & Lies, Vera Drake, Topsy-Turvy) captures the extent to which Turner would spend time studying landscapes and oceans in order to properly capture them in his paintings.Anchored by a terrific performance by Timothy Spall, who portrays Turner as a curmudgeon who was a bit of a loner, the biopic, which shows at 6:15 tonight and at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, is a fascinating period piece. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
