Alternately poignant, tearful and laugh-out-loud funny, “One Last Thing…” walks an odd line between drama and airy feel-fine comedy, but it seems sure of every move thanks to a pitch perfect script by Barry Stringfellow.
Moving, funny, startlingly original. One of the year’s first great surprises and clearly one of its best films.
“One Last Thing…” isn’t a wish-fulfilling fantasy; it’s a story that rings true and moves us, but without easy sentiment.
Propelled by Michael Angarano’s funny, nuanced performance and Barry Stringfellow’s virtuoso script, “One Last Thing…” is an irresistible mix of pathos, adolescent anarchy and occasionally raunchy laughs.
One Last Thing …” does make audiences feel that life a is mysterious, wonderful and grand, but it does so by never saying it and by staying grounded in the earthy, messy ways in which people live.
…a sweet, funny, insightful, and entirely lovable tale.
