Synopsis by Mark Deming
A young woman's real talent gets her mixed up with crooks selling fake art treasures in this comedy for the whole family. Jo (Nina Petronzio) is a 13-year-old girl who loves to draw and has a very special talent -- she can sketch and paint in a style that bears a startling resemblance to the work of Vincent Van Gogh. Jo's talent has won her a grant to art school, but she also discovers it can earn her pocket money when a man in a coffee shop sees her sketching and offers to pay her to do some drawings for him. Jo agrees, but regrets her decision when she discovers she's unwittingly become part of an art counterfeiting ring -- her drawings are being as sold as Van Gogh originals, with customers lining up to pay the multimillion-dollar price tags! Vincent and Me also features Christopher Forrest, Paul Klerk, and Tcheky Karyo as the ghost of Vincent Van Gogh.
