In 17th century Amsterdam, when Cornelis (Christoph Waltz)
commissions a portrait of his wife Sophia (Alicia Vikander),
an  irrepressible passion begins to bloom between Sophia and the artist  (Dane DeHaan). The young lovers hinge their future together on an  investment in the risky tulip market, but tensions build and
deceptions abound as the stakes grow higher. Beautifully shot in
muted palettes reminiscent of Vermeer, Tulip Fever interweaves the
narrative of one of the most astonishing economic events in
European history with a deeply intimate tale of desire, betrayal, and
perilous ambition.
