See, folks don't care if it's a copy.

Big Eyes (2014)

A fine cast elevate the film a little above it's generally bland telling. 
Burton never seems to really get beneath the material turning in a competent but slight examination of the pursuit of fame and the uneven treatment of artistic women. 
It livens up a little in a daft courtroom scene with Waltz chewing the scenery to shreds playing nicely against Adams calmness but perhaps the whole film needed a bit more passion, more energy. It comes off feeling much more like a teevee movie than the strangely similar Behind The Candelabra and could have done with some of that film's verve.
