Van Gogh & Me

By Matthew Gutschick

After a colorful and sometimes challenging creative career, the weary artist Vincent van Gogh (creator of such iconic works as “The Starry Night” and “Sunflowers” paintings), finds himself retreating to an out-of-the-way French town Auvers-Sur-Oise. While the citizens and tourists of the tiny town are not sure what to make of the strange man and his unusual painting style, a young and curious girl named Adeline strikes up a gentle, even fragile friendship with the mysterious and misunderstood painter. Based on actual events, this moody atmospheric story of the power of art and simple friendship will give you a new appreciation of the artist and his beautiful post-impressionistic works.
