Synopsis: In the cutthroat world of fine-art trading and representation, up-and-coming agent Josephina (Zawe Ashton) stumbles across a secret weapon: hundreds of dazzling paintings left behind after an elderly tenant in her building dies. Ignoring the instructions the clandestine artist left to destroy his work, she promptly starts circulating the paintings, which soon attract the attention of the heavy hitters around her—including her boss Rhodora (Rene Russo), art critic (and Josephina’s sometime lover) Morf (Jake Gyllenhaal), and competing collectors, managers, and curators like Bryson (Billy Magnussen) and Gretchen (Toni Collette). Yet as the deceased artist’s portraits gain posthumous acclaim, they also awaken something imperceptible and sinister that threatens to punish those who have profited from his work.

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER

The thing with the... It was really a bit of a moving process. The film is a mixed genre and started little bit more I'd say on - there is still a lot of comedy in it - but little more on a comedic side and then played up a little bit more the horror nature of it as it went. So the music underwent big transformation, too. I don't think I came up with the main theme for the piece untill I was half way through the process and the whole beginning was now different. It used to start with a scene in Miami, then it shifted focus, so it was a lot of different thematic ideas that I was working on and the process was to determine what will stick and what I could develop.
