Warner Bros. released a theatrical trailer for The Best Offer, a Italian romantic mystery film written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore.

It stars Geoffrey Rush, Jim Sturgess, Sylvia Hoeks and Donald Sutherland.

“The film tells a story of love and deceit, set in Europe (Trieste, Bolzano, Fidenza, Rome, Milan, Merano, Vienna, Prague) in the world of high-end art auctions and antiques.

The story revolves around Virgil Oldman (Geoffrey Rush), an elderly and esteemed, but somewhat eccentric, managing director of an auction house. Oldman is hired by a reclusive young heiress, Claire Ibbetson (Sylvia Hoeks), to auction off the large collection of art and antiques left to her by her parents.

For some reason, Claire always refuses to be seen in person. An astute young artificer, Robert (Jim Sturgess), then aids Oldman in restoring and reassembling some odd mechanical parts he finds amongst Claire’s belongings, while also giving him advice on how to befriend her, and how to deal with his feelings towards her.

Oldman’s poise and prestige is counterpointed by an ongoing scam whereby his friend Billy Whistler (Donald Sutherland) helps him to acquire a secret private collection of master paintings.”

The Best Offer is set to release on January 1, 2014 in US.
