Grunting. And snarling.


Mr Turner grunts and growls his way through the film, and not necessarily in an amiable tone.

Not sure how historical some of the details are, and occasionally I thought the language was more clunky than authentic. But we were glued to the story, fascinated by the presentation of Turner’s painting techniques, intrigued by the scenes re-creating 19th century London and Margate, and wanting to visit the real pictures again.
