Loving Vincent is a stunning, fully painted animated feature, starring Douglas Booth and Oscar-nominated Saoirse Ronan and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman. Loving Vincent explores the life and controversial death of Vincent van Gogh, told by his paintings and by the characters that inhabit them. The intrigue unfolds through interviews with the characters closest to Vincent and through dramatic reconstructions of the events leading up to his death.
Loving Vincent stars Douglas Booth, Jerome Flynn, Chris O’Dowd, Oscar-nominee Saoirse Ronan, Aidan Turner, Helen McCrory, Eleanor Tomlinson and John Sessions. Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman co-directed the feature with Hugh Welchman also producing alongside Sean Bobbitt for the Oscar-winning BreakThru Films (Peter and the Wolf) and Ivan MacTaggart for Trademark Films (Shakespeare in Love). David Parfitt and Silver Reel’s Claudia Bluemhuber and Ian Hutchinson served as executive producers. The film’s musical score was composed and arranged by Grammy nominated Clint Mansell (Black Swan).
