Talent Turns ‘Mr. Turner’ Into Portrait of a Period

4 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anyone who works with Mike Leigh, director of “Mr. Turner,” knows ahead of time that they’ll be building the project nearly from scratch: actors will help in the creation of their characters, and crew such as the costume designer and production designer (in this case, Leigh newcomer Suzie Davies and veteran of the process Jacqueline Durran, respectively) are aware they will be collaborating not just with each other, but with the performers.

Location was of key importance to Davies (she shares her Oscar nomination with set decorator Charlotte Watts), who explains that the full production was housed in the same building. “Our offices were quite useful,” she says. “Jacqueline was down the corridor and my office became this room of reference. Every lunchtime we’d have these powwows with other departments.”

For example, says Durran, the pair might meet with Marion Bailey (Mrs. Booth) to get her to explain the essence of her character. »

Mr. Turner – The Review

15 January 2015 5:00 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Mike Leigh’s meticulous look into the life of late 18th and 19th century painter J.M.W. Turner seems like an artifact from the very period that the film takes place. Between Dick Pope’s sumptuous and yet classical approach to photography and Leigh’s painstaking storytelling, Mr. Turner feels like a film that’s meant to be seen with a trained eye and with much patience. You aren’t going to find an engaging biographical look at an artist – those who are familiar with Mike Leigh’s filmography know that that just isn’t his style. With Mr. Turner Leigh presents the occasional highs and lowest lows of what life is like in Britain as a struggling artist. Even though details from Turner’s life are present, it is the examination of the more mundane and routine life of the painter that audiences will either be intrigued by »
