3. Martin Freeman as Rembrant van Rijn
Character:Rembrant van Rijn
Year Released: 2007
In the great film from the great art director Peter Greenaway, Martin Freeman stars as a young and cocksure Rembrandt. With some strong and signature wit, the film probes the levels of privilege surrounding his contemporaries and focuses on the sinister detail of one of his most famous works, wherein he supposedly painted the evidence of a murder. This truly beautiful and moody picture is a one of a kind blend of contemporary film and dialogue on classic images and themes.
