Storyline Heading
Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer ("Girl with a Pearl Earring") manage to paint so photo-realistically -- 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers. Spanning eight years, Jenison's adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney, and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the collection of the Queen.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Documentary - Although a documentary focused on art, this has a lot of wider appeal than it sounds due to the approach taken by filmmakers Penn and Teller, who approach the subject much like their popular long-running magician act. The R rating is only due to literally a couple of profanities, so this is actually fairly safe viewing for kids overall, but they likely won't be interested.
