PhilaMOCA and IFC Films are pleased to present the Exclusive Philadelphia Engagement for THE BEST OFFER from Academy Award winning director Giuseppe Tornatore (CINEMA PARADISO, THE STAR MAKER). The film stars Geoffrey Rush (THE KING'S SPEECH, SHINE), Jim Sturgess (ACROSS THE UNIVERSE), and Donald Sutherland and features a score by legendary composer Ennio Morricone who referred to his contribution as "something completely new, both in absolute music and in music applied to the cinema".
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.
Part detective story, part character study, THE BEST OFFER is an unpredictable mystery of heartbreaking proportions.
