Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) leads this costume drama based on Deborah Moggach's novel, adapted to the screen by Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love).
In 17th-century Amsterdam, a married woman (Vikander) feels trapped in a loveless marriage with her husband (Christoph Waltz, Django Unchained), and begins a passionate affair with an artist (Dane DeHaan, Chronicle) hired to paint her portrait. The lovers gamble on the booming market for tulip bulbs as a way to raise money and run away.
- Tom Stoppard (based on the novel by Deborah Moggach)

I found the movie painful at times, seeing the charaters do things that were so obviously going to go bad on them. I couldn't watch those parts. But the costumes were beautiful!! Great actors and interesting to learn more about the Tulip market.
Storyline lost in pornography
Very disappointed in this film. We were hoping for a good story about the tulip fever but soon realised this is just a porn movie.
Not enough story
I found myself wanting to know more about the bubble that was the "Tulip fever" without so much exposition. I think the parallels between that story and the romantic story would have been better. Nevertheless, I don't regret seeing this movie.
