Mr. Turner explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.

"To put it bluntly this is a film that probably should not work at all considering the disparate tones they are attempting to meld, but anchored by Kikuchi's performance, otherworldly visuals and a haunting score the Zellner's have created a film of exquisite beauty and deep meaning for those willing to be a little adventurous."
