YoFiFest film listing here

 

A suicidal alcoholic on the anniversary of his son’s death. When he attempts to call a crisis hotline, a misdial connects him with a single mother working as the night janitor at a local community college. The split screen feature showcases both characters in real-time as they navigate a life-changing conversation.

 

"Last Call [is] one of the most powerful films of 2019 so far, it’s one that lives and dies by the gradual unfolding of its narrative being uncluttered of expectations of where it’s going. It’s not that it has plot twists or surprises, it’s that it’s about witnessing our own innate humanity in real-time." - OC Movie Reviews

 

"Booth delivers a deeply affecting, empathetic performance as the hard-luck, deeply loving, spread-too-thin Beth. Wilkins marvels in his performance as a man walking on an edge, weighed down by his pain, self-hatred, and self-medication. Both actors had to take their characters to dark places and did so with grace." - Toronto Film Files
