Here’s the US trailer of Final Portrait, the latest the latest biography drama movie written and directed by Stanley Tucci and starring Geoffrey Rush and Armie Hammer:
“In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art-lover James Lord is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees. So begins not only the story of a touching and offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, a uniquely revealing insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. FINAL PORTRAIT is a bewitching portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity. It is a film which shines a light on the artistic process itself, by turns exhilarating, exasperating and bewildering, questioning whether the gift of a great artist is a blessing or a curse.”
This artist has the heart of a POTC pirate, doesn’t he?
Besides Geoffrey Rush and Armie Hammer, the film is also starring Tony Shalhoub, Sylvie Testud, and Clémence Poésy.
US release date: March 23, 2018 (in New York and Los Angeles).
