Cover for Tim's Vermeer ©Sony Pictures ClassicsJoin us for Movie Time for Adults on Saturday, March 25, at 10 am when we will watch Tim's Vermeer ©Sony Pictures Classics.

Spanning ten years, Jenison’s adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, to the north coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney, and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the collection of the Queen. 

This is a fascinating film! It is rated PG-13 and the running time is 1 hour, 20 minutes.
