The Best Offer is pretty much The Geoffrey Rush Show – the role suits him and he embraces the opportunity totally.
The central character, Virgil Oldman, is a solitary, cultured high-end antiques dealer who has a bit of trouble relating to other people, especially women. He receives a phone call from a mysterious young heiress who invites him to evaluate some family works of art… and a most unpredictable relationship ensues.
It is a movie that seduces, engages, intrigues and entertains. Donald Sutherland has a nice little role and Sylvia Hoeks plays the heiress.
This one is for fans of movies like The King’s Speech and Rush’s performance is probably worthy of another Oscar nomination. The film runs 131 minutes and is rated M because of a sex scene, a bit of coarse language and violence.
