Girl with a Pearl Earring 2003
Adapted from a work of fiction by author Tracy Chevalier, tells a story about the events surrounding the creation of the painting Girl With A Pearl Earring by 17th century Dutch master Johannes Vermeer.
Griet (Scarlett Johansson) is a young girl from a poor peasant family. To support herself she takes a job as a maid in the house of Jan Vermeer (Colin Firth), the famous Dutch painter. It provides her with a decent-enough life, warm meals and a place to sleep. Griet is responsible for cleaning the Master’s studio every day and in this position is the only one allowed entry in this, his inner sanctum, a room, which not even his wife dares enter.
This leisurely movie explores how an erotically-charged (though never carnal) relationship is slowly forged between servant and painter, as she progresses to become the artist's assistant and, finally, model.
