Virgil Oldman (Geoffrey Rush) is a very high end art auctioneer and connoisseur who handles very high end art sales. But when he is hired to handle the estate sale of a rich heiress Claire Ibbetson (Sylvia Hoeks) who is a very strange character. She refuses to be seen and never goes out in public, and when Virgil meets with her, she is hidden from sight at all times. It appears though that through the years Virgil has been involved in some very shady deals and it this lovely lady may be out for more than it appears.

The right viewer is probably going to love this film. It is excruciatingly slow developing and is done very “artsy”. My problem was that I could not get into the story. The ending was somewhat interesting, but it took a long, long time to get there. Geoffrey Rush was very good as usual, but the story was the problem for me. Now people who love this kind of film won’t be put off by it, but I found it hard to keep my attention. It’s a bit like an old mystery novel that unwraps and peels back layer after layer until you’re surprised to see what you’ve found underneath it all. Personally, I just didn’t really get into the story, and so I didn’t enjoy it very much. Your mileage may vary.
