Story


Geoffrey Rush is superb in this stylish art world thriller as Virgil Oldman, managing director of a leading auction house. Over the years, he has collected hundreds of masterful, priceless portraits of women that he keeps hidden in his villa. One day, Oldman receives a special assignment: a mysterious young woman, who refuses to appear in person, asks him to sell her family's antiques. Not only interested in her classical paintings and furniture, Oldman becomes increasingly fascinated by the mysterious incognito woman, leading to a sumptuous and entertaining mystery of passions, neuroses and intrigue. Directed by Academy Award winner Giuseppe Tornatore (Cinema Paradiso) with music by the brilliant Ennio Morricone, "The Best Offer" also stars Jim Sturgess and Donald Sutherland.
