David Stratton Recommends

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.

Directed and written by Stanley Tucci and starring Armie Hammer, Geoffrey Rush and Clémence Poésy, 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.

Join us at Cinema Paradiso from 1pm on October 6 for a special Friday matinee screening of FINAL PORTRAIT when tickets include a complimentary glass of wine and cheese and biscuits (while stocks last) courtesy of European Foods ahead of the 1.30pm screening.
