Synopsis

Mr. Turner explores the last quarter century of the great, if eccentric, British painter JMW Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father and loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea.
