A winner at the Cannes and Venice film festivals, and led by the arthouse director behind hits like "Cinema Paradiso," "The Star Maker" and "Malena," any work from Italian filmmaker Giuseppe Tornatore is usually worth paying attention to.

The Best Offer

A winner at the Cannes and Venice film festivals, and led by the arthouse director behind hits like "Cinema Paradiso," "The Star Maker" and "Malena," any work from Italian filmmaker Giuseppe Tornatore is usually worth paying attention to. So when he assembles the kind of talent he's got in his latest "The Best Offer," it's certainly hard to resist.

Starring Geoffrey Rush, Jim Sturgess and Donald Sutherland, and featuring new a score by Ennio Morricone, the art world drama tells the story of an auction house director, Virgil Oldman, who receives a special assignment to sell the family antiques belonging to a mysterious young woman, who refuses to appear in person. And so begins a unique mystery, but as you'll see in this clip, it isn't long until Virgil tries to learn the identity of who he's working for.

"The Best Offer" is now playing in limited release and is available on VOD. Check out the clip below.
