Abstract

This is a review of the film Big Eyes. Adapted from a true story about artist Margaret Keane, the overarching theme of the movie is plagiarism. While most people think of written works such as books and articles being plagiarized, Big Eyes gives viewers insight into the world of stolen works of visual art, namely paintings. The victim finds moral courage through religion, while the thief (Keane’s husband, Walter) lives in denial until death. Anyone with an interest in art, law, or psychiatry will enjoy what Big Eyes has to offer.
