Stanley Tucci’s „Final Portrait“ has a first trailer
Geoffrey Rush has had his fair share of biopics in his stellar career, and surprisingly so has his younger colleague Armie Hammer.
The Aussie actor played David Helfgott in his Oscar winning performance in Shine, Philip Henslowe in Shakespeare in Love, Marquis de Sade in Quills, Peter Sellers, Lionel Logue, and as of this year even Albert Einstein.
However, the fans will be able to see Rush as the legendary Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti in the upcoming biopic Final Portrait. Directed by Stanley Tucci, Final Portrait is an artistic look at the making of James Lord’s (Hammer) portrait by the Swiss artist.
Clémence Poésy, Tony Shalhoub and Sylvie Testud also star in Final Portrait, and the movie opens on 18 August.
Official synopsis of Final Portrait :
FINAL PORTRAIT is the story of the touching and offbeat friendship between American writer and art-lover James Lord and Alberto Giacometti, as seen through Lord’s eyes and revealing unique insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and sometimes the chaos of the artistic process. Set in 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, Lord is asked by his friend, Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, promises Giacometti, will take only a few days and so Lord agrees — ultimately wondering “how much longer can it go on like this?”
