Stanley Tucci | UK |2017 | 90mins | 15

DunkirkIn 1964, while on a trip to Paris, the American writer and art-lover James Lord (Armie Hammer) is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush), to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. So begins the story of an offbeat friendship and an insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process.
