Movie Details

The Best Offer

The film tells a story of love and deceit, set in Europe in the world of high-end art auctions and antiques. The story revolves around Virgil Oldman (Geoffrey Rush), an elderly and esteemed, but somewhat eccentric, managing director of an auction house. Oldman is hired by a reclusive young heiress, Claire Ibbetson (Sylvia Hoeks), to auction off the large collection of art and antiques left to her by her parents. For some reason, Claire always refuses to be seen in person. An astute young artificer, Robert (Jim Sturgess), then aids Oldman in restoring and reassembling some odd mechanical parts he finds amongst Claire`s belongings, while also giving him advice on how to befriend her, and how to deal with his feelings towards her.

The Good, the Bad and the Best Offering

• This movie is certainly one of the best movies you can plan to watch with someone as the plot is smartly planned with a few surprises up its sleeves.

• The performance by the cast especially by Jim Sturgess and Geoffrey Rush is decently convincing to the point that it can make you flustered, nervous and curious.

• The suspense level of the movie's plot centred on high-end art auctions can almost be match up to Alfred Hitchcock's films.

Best Watched With

• Fans of suspense and European art.
