Rating:
PG-13
Vincent & Theo is a biographical drama directed by Robert Altman based on the tumultuous relationship of Theo van Gogh (Paul Rhys) and his brother, Vincent van Gogh (Tim Roth), whose unstable mental health led to his ultimate suicide. While Vincent eventually gained acclaimed and recognition for his post-Impressionist work as a painter, his life though was full of instability and artistic disappointment when no one truly appreciated his work. As Vincent traveled the word perfecting his skills, his art dealer brother, Theo, tried to maintain contact with his older brother, often supporting him when works never sold. It was a difficult task as Vincent's tendency to fall into full depressive states and severe anxiety. Theo was left to pick up the pieces, both emotionally and professionally, until the elder's eventual suicide. Inspired in part by the collection of letters published after their deaths, Vincent & Theo is a look at the difficult love between siblings.
