Italian filmmaker Giuseppe Tornatore (Cinema Paradiso) returns with a story of high art, intrigue, and unconventional romance starring Geoffrey Rush, Donald Sutherland, and Jim Sturgess. Encore matinees added: Jan 31 & Feb 1
Virgil Oldman (Geoffrey Rush) is an elegantly eccentric art auctioneer who lives alone surrounded by exquisite art. When he receives instructions to help a reclusive young woman sell her family's antiques, his interest is piqued, not just due to the works at stake but because of the woman - who refuses to meet in person and will only communicate through walls and doors.
A box-office smash in Italy, The Best Offer collected six Italian Academy Awards (the David di Donatello Award), including Best Film and Best Director.
