In broad strokes it outlines the history of Spain at the time. An entertaining if somewhat overwrought plot.

Sorry, but aside from the great sets and costumes Goya's Ghosts has little to offer. This made up story is preposterous. Poor Goya; his name is hitched to a bad movie that has little to do with his life.

Great movie in many aspects. I was looking to see more about Goya the painter but was surprised to learn about the Inquisition and persecution of Jews.

Olivia, I agree. The plot was a bit overdone but still a wonderful period piece and a fascinating look at the upheaval in Spain.

The costumes and strong cast are distracting enough that make up for what I thought was an ill-paced plot but it kept my attention and I'd recommend it to those that enjoy period dramas.
