Girl With A Pearl Earring  (DVD)
In order to support her family, seventeen year old Griet becomes a maid in the house of Johannes Vermeer and soon attracts the master painter's attention. Although worlds apart in upbringing and social standing, Vermeer recognizes her intuitive understanding of his work and slowly draws her into his mysterious world of art and passion. Whilst she falls increasingly under Vermeer's spell, his volatile family quickly grows jealous of her. Maria, his shrewd mother-in-law, struggles to maintain the family's lifestyle, but seeing that Griet inspires Vermeer, takes the decision to let their relationship develop. Van Ruijven, also sensing the intimacy between master and maid, commissions Vermeer to paint Griet's portrait. The result will be one of the greatest paintings ever created but at what cost?
