The Best Offer



The Best Offer (2013, rated R, 131 minutes) knocks you down with a surprise ending worthy of the name. I don’t indulge in spoiler alerts. Watch the movie and be entertained.

Virgil Oldman (played intensively by Geoffrey Rush) is an acclaimed and deceitful auctioneer who is drawn into a complicated sale by the reclusive Claire (played  intensively by Sylvia Hoeks). They fall in love. Then stuff happens. There are a couple semi-distracting subplots. Donald Sutherland as Billy offers a casually funny supporting role.

A bleak heartbreaker creeps up on you in the last few minutes of the film.

In almost every way, The Best Offer is not your typical movie.
