Program Description

Event Details

When her father goes blind, Griet (Scarlett Johansson) must go to work as a maid for painter Johannes Vermeer (Colin Firth). While cleaning the house, Griet strikes up an unlikely friendship with Vermeer, which both agree to keep secret for fear of provoking the painter's jealous wife, Catharina (Essie Davis). When wealthy patron Van Ruijven (Tom Wilkinson) begins to lust after Griet, and commissions a painting of her, Vermeer and Griet are obliged to spend long hours alone together.

Before going to the Larchmont Arts Festival on Saturday, September 30th 12-5, in Constitution Park get into an artsy frame of mind by seeing a movie based on one of the most celebrated artists in history.
