An epic art fraud

Margaret (Amy Adams) and Walter (Christoph Waltz) get caught red handed in ‘Big Eyes’.

Big Eyes tells the outrageous true story of one of the most epic art frauds in history. In the 1960s, painter Walter Keane had reached success beyond belief, revolutionising the commercialisation of popular art with enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes.

The bizarre and shocking truth would eventually be discovered: Walter's works were actually created by his wife Margaret.

The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a colossal lie that had fooled the entire world.

Big Eyes is an American biographical drama directed by Tim Burton, starring Academy Award nominee Amy Adams and Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz.
