Preview: “Tulip Fever”

tulip-fever

Tulip Fever” is a forthcoming romantic drama directed by Justin Chadwick and based on a novel by Deborah Moggach (the original writer of “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” (2011)). The film is set in the 17th century Amsterdam, the Netherlands, at the peak of the so-called “tulipomania” when people were prepared to buy blossoming tulips for ridiculously high prices.  At the centre of the story is a young woman, Sophia (Alicia Vikander), who married an older man, Cornelis Sandvoort (Christoph Waltz), without being in love with him, and partly to gain stability and financial security. However, Sophia soon becomes infatuated with the young painter Jan van Loos (Dane DeHaan) after her husband commissions a family portrait from him. To gain financial independence, the duo of lovers then bet everything on the prosperous at that time market of tulips. Apart from anything else, “Tulip Fever” is now known for its long years of production, which dates back to 2004, when the original idea for the film emerged. Apparently, the film was due for a release in July 2016, but was pushed forward to this month of 2017.
