“In 17th Century Amsterdam, an orphaned girl (Alicia Vikander) is forcibly married to a rich and powerful merchant (Christoph Waltz) – an unhappy “arrangement” that saves her from poverty. After her husband commissions a portrait, she begins a passionate affair with the painter (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.”
A wise quote from the trailer: “There’s nothing without risk!”
Well let’s be bold then!
Besides Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, and Christoph Waltz, the cast also includes Holliday Grainger, Jack O’Connell, Zach Galifianakis, Dame Judi Dench, Matthew Morrison, Tom Hollander, Cara Delevingne, Cressida Bonas, and David Harewood.
The film will be released in theaters on August 25, 2017.
