Mick Jagger Stars in Art Heist Thriller ‘The Burnt Orange Heresy’

Donald Sutherland costars in the psychological drama, which hits theaters March 6

When a series of unfortunate events causes enigmatic artist Jerome Debney (Donald Sutherland) to lose his life’s work, he’s forced to live tucked away on the Lake Como estate of dastardly arts dealer Joseph Cassidy, played all too convincingly by Mick Jagger. When Cassidy becomes determined to own an original Debney painting, he recruits an unscrupulous critic (Claes Bang) to help him procure it.

In theaters March 6, The Burnt Orange Heresy has more twists than an M. C. Escher, more symbolism than a Gustav Klimt, and a plot that will keep fans of films like The Thomas Crown Affair and The Forger enraptured until  the last frame.
