Storyline

In 17th Century Amsterdam, an orphaned girl Sophia (Alicia Vikander) is forcibly married to a rich and powerful merchant Cornelis Sandvoort (Christoph Waltz) - an unhappy "arrangement" that saves her from poverty. After her husband commissions a portrait, she begins a passionate affair with the painter Jan Van Loos (Dane DeHaan), a struggling young artist. Seeking to escape the merchant's ever-reaching grasp, the lovers risk everything and enter the frenzied tulip bulb market, with the hope that the right bulb will make a fortune and buy their freedom.

Trivia

In 2004, director John Madden was lining up the movie with Keira Knightley and Jude Law to star, with a script by Tom Stoppard. Once tax incentives for production in UK disappeared, the project was cancelled. Some sets had already been constructed and 12,000 tulips had to be dead-headed. Soon after that, director Peter Chelsom tried to get it made, and he didn't fare any better. Then in 2011, Tom Hooper considered it among a handful of other projects as his followup to The King's Speech (2010) before deciding on Les Misérables (2012). In July 2013, Justin Chadwick was announced as the director. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Maria: [narration] Before you were born, Amsterdam was captivated by a flower: the tulip. They came from far away in the East and were so rare and beautiful that people lost their senses in wanting to own them. Rich and poor were spending and borrowing money to join the trade in bulbs, which were going up in price all the time. None more so than the rare striped tulips that were called breakers.

Not a fan of the actor
2 September 2017 | by michael_mickelsonSee all my reviews

Something about Dane Dehaan creeps me out and every film I have seen with him in it I find I am distracted. It's like he is a 50 year old portraying a 20 year old. I know this doesn't seem fair, but I just can't wrap my head around his recent rise in Hollywood and all of these parts that he doesn't seem to fit? Am I missing something? The actress in this was wonderful and I liked her in Ex Machina as well. This is a very dark intense film, beautifully shot, but leaves a strange after taste.
