They say you can’t go home again – but Jeremy Piven appears to do just that in Last Call.
This comedy/drama looks like it has a lot of heart and it should deliver some feel-good laughs – and a little depth. I’m getting serious 1990s vibe from the film (like old Miramax used to make), which was directed by Paolo Pilladi and written by Pilladi and Greg Lingo.
Jeremy Piven, Bruce Dern, Taryn Manning, Jamie Kennedy, Cathy Moriarty and Cheri Oteri, Last Call arrives in US cinemas, On Demand and Digital on 19 March 2021.
It looks good.
A local success story and real estate developer, Mick (Jeremy Piven), returns home to his offbeat blue collar Irish neighborhood in the shadows of Philadelphia for a funeral and is obligated to stay to ensure his parents’ ailing family business gets back on course. Amidst all of this, he grows closer to his childhood crush (Taryn Manning) who is also back in town, while enduring the constant ridicule from his old hometown crew. As Mick begins to reconnect with the neighborhood he grew up in, he finds himself at a crossroads when forced to either raze or resurrect the family bar.
