Margaret Keane’s paintings of wide-eyed women and children were hugely popular in the 1950s and 1960s, and yet no one knew who she was. This is because her husband Walter Keane claimed that he painted them. Unraveling this intriguing story, Tim Burton uses his trademark eccentricity and magical realism to reveal the extent to which Walter Keane not only manipulated Margaret but also his audience. An intimate and sometimes sinister portrait of an oppressive relationship, the film also acts as a microscope on American society - marriage, sexism, culture - of the time.
