LAST FLAG FLYING - Media Preview Screening, Saturday 14 April
Media Screening Saturday 14 April at 10.00am for 10.30am start at Luna Leederville
In Richard Linklater’s lyrical road movie, as funny as it is heartbreaking, three aging Vietnam-era Navy vets—soft-spoken Doc (Steve Carell), unhinged and unfiltered Sal (Bryan Cranston), and quietly measured Mueller (Laurence Fishburne)—reunite to perform a sacred task: the proper burial of Doc’s only child, who has been killed in the early days of the Iraq invasion. As this trio of old friends makes its way up the Eastern seaboard, Linklater gives us a rich rendering of friendship, a grand mosaic of common life in the USA during the Bush era, and a striking meditation on the passage of time and the nature of truth.
★★★★★ “One of Linklater's most impressive achievements. A terrifically funny, deeply moving picture” Little White Lies
★★★★★“A major film. Steve Carell is outstanding.” Time Out New York
★★★★“Athoughtful tally of the cost of war on ordinary lives that also manages to be a funny, moving men-on-a-road-trip movie. It’s that rare thing: a sequel, albeit 44 years late, that is worth catching up with.” Empire
★★★★“Thought-provoking, funny and deeply moving.Deliciously performed by three actors at the top of their game.” Daily Mail
