Geoffrey Rush and Jim Sturgess Take ‘Best Offer’ From ‘Cinema Paradiso’ Director; Ennio Morricone Scoring

Written by on April 5, 2012 

Some international casting news comes in from Variety, who report that Geoffrey Rush and Jim Sturgess have been cast in The Best Offer, a drama set in the high-stakes world of art auctions; there’s something we don’t see onscreen too often. Giuseppe Tornatore (Cinema Paradiso) is helming, with production kicking off in Vienna and the Alps at the end of this month.

Nothing else exists in the realm of plot, though it could be said plot takes something of a backseat when you learn Ennio Morricone — a man who requires no introduction — will be working on the score. No matter how The Best Offer comes across in terms of screenplay, performances, direction, cinematography, etc., there’s a strong chance it’ll sound terrific. But, still: a classy, Europe-set film that a) is directed by Tornatore and b) stars Rush and Sturgess can’t be all bad. It could even be quite good.

Does The Best Offer leave a good impression thus far?
