Margaret Keane was one of the most popular names in the United States art scene in the 1960s. Decades later her personal and professional lives were translated into cinema by Tim Burton. The objective of this essay is to analyze the biopic film of the artist and draw parallels between the cinematographic work - directors, context, production, etc. - and her career, trying to raise questions about the accuracy of the information presented, the way her pieces were approached and the movie direction’s own interpretations.
Thus, a specific methodology was developed for this study: in addition to the film being carefully watched multiple times, the paintings and prints present in the scenes were almost all identified; Then there was a search for original documents, articles and images to compare the narrative presented to the actual events; Finally, previous Tim Burton films were studied, as well as specialized bibliography, to observe his characteristics in the way of directing as well as the movie’s technical team.
