Tulip Fever

Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) leads this costume drama based on Deborah Moggach's novel, adapted to the screen by Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love).

In 17th-century Amsterdam, a married woman (Vikander) feels trapped in a loveless marriage with her husband (Christoph Waltz, Django Unchained), and begins a passionate affair with an artist (Dane DeHaan, Chronicle) hired to paint her portrait. The lovers gamble on the booming market for tulip bulbs as a way to raise money and run away.

It arrives not as a lusty tale in full bloom but as a tastefully arranged still life, in search of an animating spark.

As Chadwick piles on the coincidences and misdirections, the movie finally collapses under its own schematic weight, and wilts to the ground.
