Marie Antoinette is so last season.

This month's bravest biopic is the Vancouver premiere of Klimt, which stars the inimitable John Malkovich as the famed art nouveau painter Gustav Klimt, best known for "The Kiss."

Set in fin-de-siècle Vienna and featuring the gorgeous Saffron Burrows, there's plenty of eccentricity, sex, lots of gold leaf, and, naturally, a tragic ending.

But where are the petit fours?

Klimt plays tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the Vancity Theatre. Click here for details and more great upcoming films.
