Tulip Fever (2017, D: Chadwick) S: Vikander, Waltz, DeHaan, O'Connell, Dench





In 17th Century Amsterdam, an orphaned girl (Alicia Vikander) is forcibly married to a rich and powerful merchant (Christoph Waltz) - an unhappy "arrangement" that saves her from poverty. After her husband commissions a portrait, she begins a passionate affair with the painter (Dane DeHaan), a struggling young artist. Seeking to escape the merchant's ever-reaching grasp, the lovers risk everything and enter the frenzied tulip bulb market, with the hope that the right bulb will make a fortune and buy their freedom.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0491203

Opens this weekend.

Considering how much this forum hates on Dane, but loves Alicia, this movie will be a tough choice.

But, there's the tulip bulbs...

Actually Tom, this forum hates Tulip (see Preacher thread) and Dane, so Alicia might be able to overcome the distaste for Dane or Tulip, but maybe not both. I admit the film sounds different than what you usually get from period romance films...but still something I would only consider watching once it hits cable/streaming.

Are they going to tiptoe through the tulips?

It might be interesting to catch eventually. Looks like there might be a twist where their plan goes awry.

Damn OP, you gotta at least post the red band trailer to get the people here interested!

By all accounts, this movie is terrible and was filmed way back in 2014 and has sat on the shelf since then. It's this year's The Light Between Oceans, and even shares its Labour Day release date.

Is this a foregone tragedy, as if they invested all their money in Wall Street in mid-October 1929?

I'm looking forward to the reboot featuring Beanie Babies.
