ABOUT THE LECTURE

ABOUT THE FILM

Director Peter Greenaway’s stylish and beautifully rendered murder mystery is set on a rural English country estate in 1694. An artist (Anthony Higgins) is hired to draw landscapes for a wealthy couple; in its meticulous detail, the young man’s art unwittingly captures evidence of foul play. An elegant, multilayered puzzle that goes way beyond a simple “whodunit” to explore class and sexual politics.
