Final Portrait Official UK Trailer HD 2017

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.
FINAL PORTRAIT is written and directed by Stanley Tucci (Spotlight, The Hunger Games) and stars Geoffrey Rush (The Book Thief, The King’s Speech), Armie Hammer (Nocturnal Animals, Man From U.N.C.L.E)and Clémence Poésy (In Bruges, The Tunnel).

FINAL PORTRAIT will be unveiled across the UK and Ireland by Vertigo Films on August 18.
