At Eternity’s Gate is a 2018 biographical drama about the final years of painter Vincent van Gogh’s life. The film dramatizes the controversial theory put forward by Van Gogh biographers Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, in which they speculate that Van Gogh’s death was caused by mischief rather than it being a suicide.
The film is directed and co-edited by Julian Schnabel, from a screenplay by Schnabel, Jean-Claude Carrière, and Louise Kugelberg, and premiered at the Venice International Film Festival. For his portrayal of van Gogh, Willem Dafoe was nominated for an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Actor, and won the Volpi Cup for Best Actor at the 75th Venice International Film Festival.
