Storyline

High school is over, and everybody in the small town just up the Hudson from New York City where Jim lives has made plans and moved on everybody except Jim. While his buddies head off to one Ivy League college or another, Jim rejects their upwardly-mobile choices and takes a job driving for the local cab company instead, which allows him plenty of free time to hang out, drink with the locals at John's Bar & Grill, and think back on the love affair with a married woman that, for the exquisite moment it lasted, brought passion and meaning to his life. Drawing partially on events from his own life, first time writer/director Peter Callahan tells a poignant and sometimes hilarious story about what happens when life moves on and you're not quite ready to move with it.

loved it!
25 July 2006 | by domsteadSee all my reviews

I saw this at the Anchorage Film Festival years ago and loved it. The director told us it was loosely based on his own life growing up in Hastings-on-Hudson. I've never been there but the movie made it an appealing destination for future travels. Last Ball was solid with great characters. There are lots of those "nameless/faceless" actors in it that you've seen in so many movies but never caught their name. Leo Fitzpatrick (Kids) is great as the sidekick. Anyone who grew up privileged in small town America can definitely relate to it. There are characters we have all "known" from our rebellious teen years... the over-demanding father, the motherly bartender, a concerned sheriff, the goof ball friend you can't quite shake and maybe don't want to. I have checked for it on DVD but doubt it will ever be available. It's a treat and if you're able to see it at a festival then do it. I would love to see it again.
