The Last Word

Part of the American Dreams Strand


MacLaine stars as Harriet, a retired businesswoman whose bitterness towards the world, sharp tongue, and acerbic wit become a source of frustration for Anne (Amanda Seyfried), the young journalist she hires to write her premature obituary. Embarking on a series of mini adventures designed to provide 'good copy' for the task at hand, they develop a warm rapport that eventually blossoms into real friendship. A charming comedy about the important things in life, with a bittersweet nod to our own mortality.
