Alberto Giacometti is a Swiss painter and sculptor, living in a small studio in Paris. When his friend James Lord visits, Giacometti decides to paint a ‘Final Portrait’ of him. He’s long been obsessed with finding perfection in his art, but has trouble actually finishing anything – so he insists that Lord comes back, day after day, until he manages to capture exactly what he sees in Lord’s face. Stanley Tucci takes the director’s chair for ‘Final Portrait’, a true story starring Geoffrey Rush as Giacometti and Armie Hammer as Lord.
