Synopsis: A master auctioneer becomes obsessed with an extremely reclusive heiress who collects fine art.
Release Date: January 1, 2014
Thoughts: So close…we were so close to having a trailer for a nice little mystery from the director of Cinema Paradiso but then some marketing genius had to go and reveal a plot development I would have much rather waited until I saw the film to find out. I can’t imagine withholding this bit of info would have seriously changed the mind of the audience this import would have attracted. Oh well…The Best Offer still has my interest thanks to The Book Thief‘s Geoffrey Rush’s mysterious art dealer that meets up with an even more mysterious heiress and attempts to unravel her secrets. I just wish, yet again, that previews weren’t always so long and spoiler heavy – but who knows, perhaps the biggest secrets are yet to come? Here’s hoping.
