Loving Vincent

  • 250 West Preston Street Mount Pleasant, MI, 48858 United States (map)

Director: Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman

Starring: Robert Gulaczyk, Douglas Booth, Helen McCrory, Saoirse Ronan, Chris O’Dowd

Rating: PG-13 Runtime: 95 min

Loving Vincent brings the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil painting, hand-painted by 125 professional oil painters who traveled across the world to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production. As remarkable as Vincent's brilliant paintings are his passionate and ill-fated life, and mysterious death. Loving Vincent was first shot as a live action film with actors, and then hand-painted over frame-by-frame in oils. The final effect is the interaction of the performance of the actors playing Vincent's famous portraits, and the performance of the painting animators, bringing these characters into the medium of paint. Loving Vincent is nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature.
