Call Me by Your Name's Armie Hammer agrees to pose for a world-famous painter in the new U.S. trailer for "Final Portrait," which also stars Oscar-winner Geoffrey Rush as renowned Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti.

Written and directed by actor Stanley Tucci, the 1964-set film is a lighthearted, offbeat biopic that chronicles a week-long painting session between the 63-year-old painter and sculptor (Rush) and his latest "victim" -- American art writer and biographer James Lord (Hammer) who has agreed to pose for a portrait, but later discovers that the noted artist is racked with insecurity and self-doubt.

The film also stars French actresses Clemence Poesy ("Harry Potter" films) and Sylvie Testud (La Vie en Rose) as the women in Alberto Giacometti's life while Tucci's frequent acting collaborator Tony Shalhoub (Big Night, The Impostors) co-stars as Alberto's younger brother, artist Diego Giacometti.

After premiering to mostly positive reviews at last year's Berlin International Film Festival, "Final Portrait" is now getting a stateside release next month, opening first in New York and Los Angeles on March 23rd before expanding to other cities.

synopsis:
FINAL PORTRAIT is the story of the touching and offbeat friendship between American writer and art-lover James Lord and Alberto Giacometti, as seen through Lord's eyes and revealing unique insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and sometimes the chaos of the artistic process. Set in 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, Lord is asked by his friend, Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, promises Giacometti, will take only a few days and so Lord agrees -- ultimately wondering “how much longer can it go on like this?”
