Pinhole Movie Reviews

Girl with a Pearl Earring by tincolor

Scarlett Johansson is a poor maid in 17th century Holland who also happens to be working in the house of legendary painter, Colin Firth. The poster of this film might suggest a love story with secret rendezvous, conspiracies and hands brushing lustfully against one another, oh wait all of those things are in they movie, but they aren’t really the focus, it’s more what is unsaid and left undone that fleshes out the details of this potentially illicit relationship between a painter and his subject. The look of the movie is beautiful, mimicking Vermeer’s painting exactly, unfortunately Johansson and Firth are just not very good. Worth checking out.
