The official paperback tie-in to Tim Burton's 2014 Major Motion Picture, Big Eyes, starring Amy Adams - out Christmas Day from The Weinstein Company.
Big Eyes chronicles the life of American artist Margaret Keane and her husband Walter who rose to fame in the 1950's because of Margaret's wildly popular and iconic paintings of children. At once a view into the 1950's and 60's art scene and the close study of a marriage, the story follows the dissolution of Margaret and Walter's relationship when Walter passes himself off publicly and illegitimately as the creator of her art. The film's action culminates in a dramatic courtroom scene where husband and wife, in front of two blank canvases, each have to paint to prove the legitimacy of their claims.
This book includes the complete screenplay, an afterword by acclaimed screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Ed Wood, Man on the Moon, The People vs. Larry Flynt), and an interview with the film's real life subject, Margaret Keane. Illustrated with photos throughout.
