Girl With a Pearl Earring

Griet (Scarlett Johansson) reluctantly sits for Vermeer (Colin Firth) as he paints his masterpiece, Girl With A Pearl Earring, using his wife, Catharina's (Essie Davis) favorite pearl earrings that were slipped to Griet by Catharina's mother (Judy Parfitt). Catharina discovers the secret painting sessions and, enraged, orders Griet out of the house after attempting to destroy the painting. The head maid (Joanna Scanlan) delivers the pearls to Griet after she has left the Vermeer house.
