Where did you watch this movie?

Mr. Turner explores the last quarter of the great if eccentric British painter JMW Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.

Trivia:
At the request of Mike Leigh, Timothy Spall spend almost two years learning how to paint in preparation for his role.

In late 2014, Sony Pictures was the victim of a major hack of their computer systems in which confidential corporate information and several unreleased complete movies were posted for public consumption. Among reams of other information, DVD-quality downloads of this movie appeared online before its official cinematic release.

The working replica of Robert Stephenson's 1830 Planet locomotive is from the Manchester Museum Of Science And Industry. It ran on an old railway track in North Wales, which, crucially, ran east-west. They wanted the sun setting behind the train - the conditions Turner had painted and had only one chance to get the shot right, because the train had to be returned the next day. That night there was a glowing sunset.

The movie seemed to have generated a new interest in J.M.W. Turner's works. On December 3, 2014, Turner's painting "Rome, From Mount Aventine" (painted in 1835) was sold at auction by Sotheby's house for 30.3 million pounds (U$ 47.47 million), a record for any pre-20th century British artist. The painting was part of the Rosebery collection ever since 1878 and was in perfect conditions.

The opening scenes supposedly set in Holland/The Netherlands were filmed at Herring fleet Mill, Suffolk despite the two ladies shown speaking Dutch.
