Burton’s new movie, Big Eyes, is a biographical film staring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz, focusing on the American artist Margaret Keane (Adams) who’s work was fraudulently claimed in the 1950s and 60s by her then-husband, Walter Keane (Waltz). The film tells the story of their marriage, life, and their heated divorce trial wherein Margaret accuses Walter of stealing her paintings and selling them as his own.
