In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, American writer and art-lover James Lord (Armie Hammer, Call Me by Your Name) is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush, Shine, Shakespeare in Love), to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees—ultimately wondering “how much longer can it go on like this?” 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. Also starring Tony Shalhoub, Sylvie Testud and Clémence Poésy. Written and directed by Stanley Tucci (Big Night), adapted from James Lord’s memoir A Giacometti Portrait.
