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.

Remember that time we . . .
1 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

Watching "Last Ball" I was transported right back into my hometown. I loved this movie so much, I saw it twice! So have most of my friends, and we all agree that this film is something special. Not only does it look beautiful, but the characters are drawn so vividly that I felt like I knew every one of them personally. The pacing of the movie is particularly unique, and delightful: it's languid, like the camera is as reluctant as the characters to leave a familiar but enchanting place. There is so much love, loss, humor, and hope in this film, that you are guaranteed to fall in love, have your heart broken, and make an embarrassing snort sound when you laugh before it's over!
