The Best Offer (La Migliore Offerta) stars Geoffrey Rush as Virgil Oldman, a successful auctioneer whose sterile life unravels when a young and reclusive client, whom he eventually falls in love with, enters his life.
While Oldman was no stranger to forgeries of art, he struggles to find the truth in the only forgery that he did not catch. This movie will make you think about or reexamine all of the times you think you received a fake smile, face emotion, fake comment or even fake love. Forgeries are essential to life, sometimes we miss a fake and sometimes we spot it a mile away but still let it pass.
With the temperatures below zero degrees - why not spend your time in a movie theater?
The Best Offer is playing at the Gene Siskel Film Center until January 30.
