When wealthy merchant Cornelis commissions a portrait of his beautiful wife Sophia, an irrepressible passion begins to bloom between Sophia and the talented young artist hired to commit her beauty to canvas. As the young star-crossed lovers hinge their future together on an investment in the risky tulip market, tensions build and deceptions abound as the stakes grow higher. Beautifully shot in muted palettes reminiscent of Vermeer, Tulip Fever features quietly powerful performances from both its leads and from the brilliant supporting cast.
