A 17th century romance in which an artist falls for a married young woman while he’s commissioned to paint her portrait. The two invest in the risky tulip market in hopes to build a future together.

TULIP FEVER is based on the novel of the same name by Deborah Moggach, and directed by Justin Chadwick (THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL). The film is set in Amsterdam, during the tulip mania, a period in the Dutch Golden Age during which contract prices for bulbs of the recently introduced tulip reached extraordinarily high levels.

Orphan girl Sophia has been married off to tulip salesman Cornelis Sandvoort. When the young artist Jan de Loos is hired to paint her portrait, Sophia and Jan fall madly in love. The lovers plot to run away together, and do so by banking on the tulip market.
