Goya's Ghosts - Movie Synopsis & Plot

GOYA'S GHOSTS is a sweeping historical epic, told through the eyes of celebrated Spanish painter Francisco Goya (STELLAN SKARSGARD). Set against the backdrop of political turmoil at the end of the Spanish Inquisition and start of the invasion of Spain by Napoleon's army, the film captures the essence and beauty of Goya's work which is best known for both the colorful depictions of the royal court and its people, and his grim depictions of the brutality of war and life in 18th century Spain. JAVIER BARDEM is Brother Lorenzo, an enigmatic, cunning member of the Inquisition's inner circle who becomes infatuated with Goya's teenage muse, Ines (NATALIE PORTMAN), when she is falsely accused of heresy and sent to prison.

MOVIE REVIEW

Having just reviewed Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, I'm now sitting here writing a review for another unremarkable Natalie Portman movie called Goya's Ghosts. A gritty, dark and depressing drama set during the Spanish Inquisition, Goya's Ghosts is about an acclaimed artist who gets drawn into a political game of deception, and who gets to witness the psychological and physical destruction of a beautiful young girl.
