In summer 2013, Britain’s Mike Leigh finally got round to working on a long-cherished biopic of J M W Turner (1775-1851), the late eighteenth and early nineteenth-century British painter. Leigh is known for his contemporary tragicomedies – and plain tragedies – but he’s delved into the past lives of artists before with ‘Topsy-Turvy’, his film about Gilbert and Sullivan. As usual, Leigh worked for months with his actors before shooting the film. His longterm collaborator Timothy Spall plays the title role, and the film is said to explore the later years of the famous Londoner's life (which makes sense if Spall's in the role).
