Goya's Ghosts (2006)

Brief Nudity

Top Scene


It's Spain at the turn of the eighteenth century and the Inquisition is on in Goya's Ghosts (2006), another pretty period piece from Amadeus (1984) director Milos Forman. Brother Lorenzo (Javier Bardem) thinks it's time for the hunt for heretics to heat up, so his thugs pick up Natalie Portman on suspicion of being Jewish. She turned down a mouthful of pork at a local pub, so naturally, they figure, she needs to be tortured post-haste. It's the other white meat, dammit! Eat up! Nat is a model and muse for the great painter Francisco Goya (Stellan Skarsgård), whose work has landed him on the bad side of the monk set. Luckily for Mr. Goya, Javier is a fan, so he avoids the physical misery that a less famous iconoclast might find in 1792 Spain. Stellan gets to work trying to nab Nat back. Meanwhile the French Revolution is a-ragin' next door, and Randy Quaid is the king of Spain. Seriously.
