Paris, 1964: Alberto Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush) bumps into his old friend, the American critic James Lord (Armie Hammer), and begs that he sit for a portrait because he has an interesting face. It’ll just take a couple of days in his studio. Lord is flattered by the request and as the days go by and turn into weeks and weeks seemingly with no end in sight, he realizes his entire life has been hijacked by this erratic genius.
