Loving Vincent (2017)

Cinema at Draiocht

In a story depicted in oil painted animation, several years in the making, a young man comes to the last hometown of painter Vincent van Gogh to deliver the troubled artist's final letter and ends up investigating his final days there. In doing so, he becomes increasingly fascinated in the psyche and fate of Van Gogh as numerous suspicious details fail to add up. However, as he digs further, he comes to realize that Vincent's troubled life is as much a matter of interpretation as his paintings and there are no easy answers for a man whose work and tragedy would only be truly appreciated in the future.

Told through multiple perspectives (with a talented cast including Saoirse Ronan and Chris O’Dowd), Loving Vincent lives up to its name and offers an affectionate tribute to one of history’s greatest artists.
