Big Eyes by
Big Eyes focuses on the artistic coupling of Margaret (Amy Adams) and Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz). Walter Keane became a worldwide celebrity and talk show fixture in the 1950s after he pioneered the mass production of prints of big-eyed kids, and used his marketing savvy to sell them cheaply in hardware stores and gas stations across the country. Unfortunately, he claimed to be the artist. That role was played by Margaret, his shy wife. She generated the paintings from their basement and Walter's contribution was adding his signature to the bottom. The ruse broke up their marriage and led to a divorce and a dramatic courtroom battle to prove authorship of the paintings.

This action-packed Marvel comic book collaboration revolves around Hiro Hamada, who lives in the futuristic East/West multicultural hybrid called San Fransokyo.

Hiro eventually becomes enthusiastic about the idea, ultimately impressing stern Professor Callaghan with his knowledge of "microbots" (nano technology used to form anything). And then tragedy strikes, after which heartbroken Hiro bonds with gentle Baymax, an inflatable, translucent vinyl robotic healthcare companion designed to help ease pain. Big Hero 6 is bouncy and beguiling family fare, a charming film that values brains over brawn.
