Monday at the Movies: LOVING VINCENT

The Monday at the Movies series for April will feature LOVING VINCENT, with an afternoon showing at 1:30, and an evening show at 7:00 pm.

In a story depicted totally in oil painted animation, a young man, Armand, comes to the last hometown of painter Vincent van Gogh to deliver the troubled artist's final letter to his now late brother, Theo. After multiple failed postal delivery attempts, the letter travels to  Dr. Gachet, a close friend to Vincent. Having to wait until the doctor returns from business, Armand meets many of the people of that village who not only knew Vincent, but were apparently also models and inspirations for his art.  In doing so, Armand 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. 

It took a team of over 100 professional artists to hand paint every one of 65,000 frames of the movie. According to the official site, the work has resulted in a total of 853 different oil paintings, as each one was used multiple times, painting subsequent frames on the top of the original ones. This unique film, the world's first fully painted animation feature, is rated PG-13 and runs 1 hour and thirty-four minutes.
