Tagline: Only his passion for women could rival his passion for painting.

Plot: Director James Ivory brings the life of an extraordinary artist to the screen in SURVIVING PICASSO. During the German occupation of Paris in 1943, legendary painter Pablo Picasso (Anthony Hopkins) launches a tumultuous 10-year affair with Françoise Gilot (Natasha McElhone in her first film role), an aspiring artist four decades his junior. Drawn by her beauty and vitality, the mercurial master nonetheless cannot resist the impulse to break her will with continued dalliances with other women and remorseless bullying. Julianne Moore is the painter’s former lover, Dora Maar, and Diane Venora plays Jacqueline, the woman who would take Françoise’s place with Picasso, in this fascinating portrait of the intense, larger-than-life character.
