Based on the book The Man Who Made Vermeers by Jonathan Lopez and directed by Dan Friedkin, THE LAST VERMEER is produced by Ryan Friedkin, Danny Friedkin and Bradley Thomas and its executive producers are Ridley Scott, Peter Heslop and Gino Falsetto.

THE LAST VERMEER tells the intriguing true story of Han van Meegeren (Guy Pearce), a Dutch painter, art dealer and enigma who became famous for selling a rare Vermeer to Hitler's second in command, Hermann Göring. This act led Meegeren to be tried in 1945 as a war criminal. Captain Joseph Piller, (Claes Bang), is the former Dutch Resistance officer who believes Meegeren's innocence, helping and defending him in court. Dan Friedkin's directorial debut delivers a fascinating thriller while offering instruction on the art of Johannes Vermeer.

Synopsis: While Joseph Piller (Claes Bang), a Dutch Jew, was fighting in the Resistance during the Second World War, the witty, debonair art connoisseur Han van Meegeren (Guy Pearce) was hosting hedonistic soirees and selling Dutch art treasures to Hermann Göring and other top Nazis. Following the war, Piller becomes an investigator assigned the task of identifying and redistributing stolen art, resulting in the flamboyant van Meegeren being accused of collaboration—a crime punishable by death. But, despite mounting evidence, Piller, with the aid of his assistant (Vicky Krieps), becomes increasingly convinced of Han’s innocence and finds himself in the unlikely position of fighting to save his life.
