Final Portrait (15)

UK/2017/90mins/15 Dir: Stanley Tucci With: Geoffrey Rush, Armie Hammer, Clémence Poésy

In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer James Lord is asked by the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti, to sit for few days for a portrait. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees. But days turn into weeks and with no end in sight he realises his entire life has been hijacked by this erratic genius. So begins not only the story of an offbeat friendship and an insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. A look at two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity.

"Geoffrey Rush…brings wit, world-weariness, mischief and even a sad lost quality"
Hollywood Reporter
"Takes the biopic to an even more exquisitely homespun level of miniature close-up…watching the movie, you feel you’ve gotten to know who Alberto Giacometti is, and to revel in what it was like when an artist, sitting in a shabby studio, could command the world."
