‘There is only one thing I fear in life, my friend…
One day the black will swallow the red.’

Under the watchful gaze of his young assistant and the threatening presence of a new generation of artists, Mark Rothko takes on his greatest challenge yet: to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.

A moving and compelling account of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century whose struggle to accept his growing riches and praise became his ultimate undoing.

Why I want so desperately to see this?  The obvious is my utter devotion to Rothko, but the more compelling one I find at present is that boy playing the ‘assistant’ right next to Molina’s Rothko.  *sighs*  Oh what I wouldn’t give to be in London at that time….
