Spotlighting craftsmanship from top Merchant Ivory artisans including composer Richard Robbins, production designer Luciana Arrighi, and cinematographer Tony Pierce-Roberts, this portrait of the artist as an old man still aflame with lust and inspiration is sparked by Anthony Hopkins’ fearless performance. In the 1940s, Françoise Gilot (Natascha McElhone) finds herself in thrall to 40-years-her-senior Picasso but increasingly grapples with his peccadilloes.

A film by James Ivory
