From visionary Oscar®-nominated director Tim Burton (EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY) comes the outrageous true story of one of the most extensive art frauds in the 20th century. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, Walter Keane (two time Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz of DJANGO UNCHAINED) revolutionized the commercialization of popular art with enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. But soon the shocking truth was discovered: Walter's works were not painted by him at all, but by his wife Margaret (five time Oscar®-nominee Amy Adams of AMERICAN HUSTLE). BIG EYES focuses on the success of Margaret's paintings and her tumultuous relationship with her husband, who catapulted to international fame while taking credit for her work. Also starring Danny Huston (X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE), Krysten Ritter (TV's DON'T TRUST THE B---- IN APT. 23), Jason Schwartzman (MOONRISE KINGDOM), and Terence Stamp (THE ART OF THE STEAL).

Critics Consensus: Well-acted, thought-provoking, and a refreshing change of pace for Tim Burton, Big Eyes works both as a biopic and as a timelessly relevant piece of social commentary.
Delightful, quirky biopic of painter Margaret Keane.
