'Mozart and the Whale' Movie Poster

This is the movie poster for the film 'Mozart and the Whale' starring Josh Hartnett and Radha Mitchell, written by Ronald Bass and directed by Petter Næss.

Based on the lives of Jerry and Mary Newport it presents a fictionalised account of how the two met, fell in love and got married. As it is a fictionalised account with the names changed it should be taken to represent the true story - that is told in the book 'Mozart and the Whale: An Asperger's Love Story' which came after the film - but it is nonetheless a charming film that is well worth a watch.
