Dutch Post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh is one of the most notorious figures in the history of Western art, yet was not commercially successful or recognised at his peak as an artist. Covering his time in Arles and Auvers-sur-Oise, we find a complex, troubled soul who is seeking a new visual language, while also struggling to make sense of himself and his connection to those around him, including French artist Paul Gaugain, and a confiding priest.

'A strong, valuable and intelligent performance from Dafoe' - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
