Vertigo Releasing Unveil the Debut Trailer and Poster for Stanley Tucci’s FINAL PORTRAIT
“That's the terrible thing: the more one works on a picture, The more impossible it becomes to finish it.” Alberto Giacometti.
Following its Premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, The Fan Carpet are excited to bring you the debut Poster and Trailer for Stanley Tucci’s FINAL PORTRAIT, courtesy of Vertigo Releasing!
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).
