Willem Dafoe stars as Vincent van Gogh in the new film from Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly).

Julian Schnabel’s At Eternity’s Gate is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite skepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh’s (Academy Award® Nominee Willem Dafoe) letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented

CRITIC'S PICK: "Dafoe, with his surprising, sometimes terrifying mouth, and his skull visible beneath skin as tightly stretched as canvas, has one of cinema’s great faces, and Schnabel makes delicate use of both its ragged beauty and expressive range." — Manohla Dargis, New York Times


"The lovely new biopic by Julian Schnabel offers a vision of Van Gogh's final days that is at once bold, blissful and deeply sad." — Andrew Lapin, NPR


"Lets us feel we're living Van Gough's life and not just watching it." — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
