Amy Adams Joins Steve Martin's AN OBJECT OF BEAUTY
Amy Adams is officially set to star in the big screen adaptation of Steve Martin's novel, An Object of Beauty. According to THR the story follows "an art entrepreneur over 15 years of her life, as she acquires her own gallery, travels the world and tangles romantically with a series of men, including one who becomes a famous artist." Martin is a wonderful comedian, writer, and storyteller which is why I'm looking forward to this film.
Here's the description of his story:
A captivating presence who naturally draws in everyone around her, Lacey Yeager appears on the New York art scene as a clever and funny young intern at Sotheby’s. With her charm, ambition, and questionable and sometimes illegal tactics, she climbs the cultural ladder, step by step, and moves from cataloging paintings to success in the labyrinthine and mysterious art world. Her knowledge of art and art collectors quickly grows, and the list of men she enchants and inevitably destroys grows right alongside it. Her rise to the highest tiers of the city’s social life parallel the soaring heights—and, at times, the dark lows—of the art world and the country from the early 1990s through today.
