Thanks to Vertigo Releasing, we’ve got an exclusive look at the UK poster for The Last Word, director Mark Pellington’s upcoming comedy-drama starring Amanda Seyfried and Hollywood legend Shirley MacLaine; check it out below, and be sure to look out for our interview with Shirley MacLaine early in July!
In The Last Word, Shirley MacLaine is Harriet Lauler, a once successful businesswoman in tight control of every aspect of her life. As she reflects upon her accomplishments, she’s suddenly inspired to engage a young local writer, Anne Sherman (Amanda Seyfried), to pen her life’s story. When the initial result doesn’t meet Harriet’s high expectations, she sets out to reshape the way she is remembered, with Anne dragged along as an unwilling accomplice. As the journey unfolds, the two women develop a unique bond which alters not only Harriet’s legacy, but also Anne’s future.
The Last Word is released in UK cinemas on July 7th and will also be screening at EIFF on Sunday, June 25th.
