Mike Leigh's latest fim, the biopic Mr. Turner, depicts the 19th century British painter J.M.W. Turner with the look of the film itself inspired by Turner's own paintings.

Said Leigh at a panel following a screening at the New York FIlm Festival, "A great reference is Turner’s work as a visual reference for the whole period. The look of the film comes out a sense of us trying to interpret, visually, his paintings, but also the spirit of the two periods that the film moves through: the late-Georgian and early-Victorian periods.”
