Van Gogh: Painted with Words

Van Gogh: Painted with Words is a BBC drama-documentary presented by Alan Yentob, with Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role as Van Gogh. This is the story of Vincent Van Gogh, with dialogue sourced from his own words. Every word spoken by the actors in this film is sourced from the letters that Van Gogh sent to his younger brother Theo, and of those around him. What emerges is a complex portrait of a sophisticated, civilised and yet tormented man.
