Tim's Vermeer is one man's quest to discover the mysterious secret behind Johannes Vermeer's art. Tim is an inventor from Texas and has become obsessed with the realistic qualities of Vermeer's art. The art beautifully and secretly displays glimpses of modern life in the seventeenth century. Vermeer's most recognized piece is, Girl with a Pearl Earring. The art works have puzzled the art world for centuries in its close resemblance and detail that only photographs could capture, some 150 years after Vermeer's passing. Tim's quest takes him to foreign lands in study of and glimpses of Vermeer's genius. Tim travels the world to test his own, unique theories about the paintings. The movie is deeply and darkly enthralling as we follow Tim from the states to Europe on his quest for answers. David Hockney stars as Tim, the film is produced by the equally enigmatic Penn Gillette and is directed by the always publicly silent Teller.
