Film Screening: Girl with a Pearl Earring (2003)

Girl with a Pearl Earring

This is the fictionalized account of how Dutch master painter Johannes Vermeer’s most famous work might have come to be, told from the point of view of Griet (Scarlett Johansson), a teenage girl who leaves her family's care in the country to become a servant for the Vermeer household in the comparatively bustling, canal-laden burgh of Delft. She catches the eye of the taciturn, reclusive Vermeer (Colin Firth), and over a period of time, he begins to craft her portrait.

Starring: Colin Firth, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Wilkinson, Judy Parfitt

Lions Gate Films; Directed by Peter Webber (2003, 95 min.)
