At Eternity’s Gate

PG-13, 111 minutes


Julian Schnabel’s AT ETERNITY’S GATE is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite skepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh’s (Academy Award Nominee Willem Dafoe) letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented. And the pulsing heart of AT ETERNITY’S GATE is Dafoe’s shattering performance, nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama. With Oscar Isaac as Gauguin, Rupert Friend as Theo, Mathieu Amalric as Dr. Gachet, Emmanuelle Seigner as Madame Ginoux, and Mads Mikkelsen as The Priest. (2018, Julian Schnabel, France/USA, French with English subtitles/English, CC available, 111 min, PG-13, DCP)

“Dafoe’s work, the look in his searching, despairing eyes, feels beyond conventional acting, using intuition as well as technique to go deeply into the character, putting us in Van Gogh’s presence.” — Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“Dafoe is inspired in the kind of performance that makes an actor being cast as a famous figure seem inevitable in hindsight.” — Michael Nordine, indieWire

“Any film could give you the gist of Van Gogh’s life story, but perhaps only this one can make you feel what it would be like to stand in a field with this brilliant mind, and watch him make magic out of scenery.” — William Bibbiani, TheWrap
