Als Hausmädchen kommt die junge Griet (Scarlett Johansson) in das Haus des holländischen Malers Johannes Vermeer (Colin Firth) und ist fasziniert von seinen Werken. Der Künstler spürt sofort Griets Begeisterung und intuitives Verständnis für Malerei. Obwohl die beiden Welten, Bildung und sozialer Stand trennen, fühlen sich Magd und Meister zueinander hingezogen. Das besondere Verhältnis der beiden bleibt nicht unbemerkt und wird von Vermeers Ehefrau mit Eifersucht und Argwohn begutachtet, von Vermeers Schwiegermutter (Judy Parfitt) und Mäzen (Tom Wilkinson) hingegen schamlos für eigene Zwecke ausgenutzt. Heimlich fertigt Vermeer ein Portrait von Griet - eines der grössten Meisterwerke aller Zeiten. Doch für den Künstler und seine Muse hat dies fatale Folgen. (Quelle: Umschlag)
