The art world is dangerous business.
On Friday, the first trailer debuted for “The Burnt Orange Heresy”, which features Mick Jagger’s return to acting after nearly two decades.
“Charming and ambitious art critic James Figueras (Claes Bang) has fallen from grace. He spends his days in Milan lecturing witless tourists about art history. His only glimmer of hope is a new-found love interest, the enigmatic American, Berenice (Elizabeth Debicki),” the official description reads.
“An opportunity strikes when he is contacted by wealthy art dealer Joseph Cassidy (Mick Jagger), who summons James to his villa on Lake Como and asks him to steal a painting from the legendary reclusive artist Jerome Debney (Donald Sutherland),” the description continued. “Soon, James’ greed and ambition get the better of him, and he finds himself caught in a web of his own making.”
Jagger’s last credited screen performance was in 2001’s “The Man from Elysian Fields”. The Rolling Stones frontman has also appeared in films such as 1997’s “Bent”, 1992’s “Freejack” and the 1970 classic “Performance”.
“The Burnt Orange Heresy”, which premiered last year at the Venice Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival, hits theatres March 6.
