Head turner

It’s hard to believe that had the painter J M W Turner been playing the who-would-you-want-to-play-you-in-a-movie game he would have picked Timothy Spall. Turner’s self portrait shows he had a very different view of himself. The Mike Leigh directed pic is about to start shooting in the UK and Italy.
