BigEyes wasa fascinating movie because it teaches on the value of art. The filmalso educates about the theme of plagiarism. As a student, Iidentified with the subject because we are always told to submitnon-plagiarized papers. The movie is an American biographical workwhich features Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams. This Tim Burtondirected film narrates about the life of American painter, MargaretKeane. Keane is known for painting portrays with big eyes(Bramstedt529). The film displays the struggle that Keane underwent in the armsof her husband, Walter Keane, in search of security.
Thefilm communicated to me effectively. The film seems to point out thatMargaret was in need of security and that is why she married Walter.On the other hand, Walter seeks something different. He seeksvalidation, something that he will never acquire. He, therefore,hijacks Margaret`s skill and talent of painting and goes on to sellit as his own. Although Margaret gets shocked at first, she does notsee what is happening. However, it is the awakening of her moralvalues that makes Margaret conscious of her behavior.
BigEyes isan entertaining film that has educative values. Students and learninginstitutions can learn about maintaining the authenticity ofscholarly literature. What I liked about the movie is that althoughMargaret is portrayed as weak and insecure, the role she finallytakes towards the end of the film does not compel her to feel sorryfor Walter. The film is also thought-provoking as it raises criticalissues present in the society. Similarly, it teaches on the value ofartwork and the legal protection around it, just as it is inscientific research.
