The pair finds their lives inexplicably linked to the painting. Directed by John Crowley, based on the novel by Donna Tartt. "
This movie follows the book very well. The characters are followed at different times in their lives and the acters not only looked like the same people at different ages, but portrayed them excellently. Great movie.
