‘Final Portrait’ is based on a true story, and was written and directed by Stanley Tucci. The script was adapted from James Lord’s memoir, ‘A Giacometti Portrait.’ In addition to Rush and Hammer, the comedy-drama also stars Tony Shalhoub, Sylvie Testud and Clémence Poésy. The DVD includes interview clips with the cast and filmmakers, as well as behind-the-scenes footage from the set.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has released the following synopsis for ‘Final Portrait’:

In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art-lover James Lord (Hammer) is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti (Rush), to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees.

So begins not only the story of a touching and offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, a uniquely revealing insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. ‘Final Portrait’ is a bewitching portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity. It is a film which shines a light on the artistic process itself, by turns exhilarating, exasperating and bewildering, and questions whether the gift of a great artist is a blessing or a curse.
