The renowned painter, Vincent van Gogh (Willem Dafoe), spends his prolific period in Arles and Auvers-sur-Oise, France filling canvases with masterpieces of the natural world. Reflecting on how the artist may have seen himself, this post-impressionist portrait of a tormented van Gogh explores his ongoing struggle with social anxiety.Driven by his appreciation for the world and obsession with sunlight, van Gogh becomes convinced to move south and pursue his art after meeting contemporary Paul Gauguin (Oscar Isaac). Based on his letters, the imaginative biopic recounts van Gogh’s final days and delves into the mind of a visionary who created some of the world’s most praised works of art.
