Quotes

Frances Kroll: Scott, tell me about Zelda.
F. Scott Fitzgerald: I met her at a dance when I was 21. She was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. When she looked at me she looked at me she looked right inside me. Way deep with a look that said "Well hello there old thing where have you been all these years? Whats been keeping you?" I proposed. She turned me down because I had no prospects. So, I retired to the attic of my parents house in St Pauls and I wrote This Side of Paradise which made me rich. I proposed again. This ...

Great Acting
21 July 2007 | by (Lisbon, Portugal) – See all my reviews

In "Last Call", Jeremy Irons is, in short, F. Scott Fitzgerald himself. Very much like Phillip Seymour Hoffman in "Capote", Irons has captured every mannerism and the speech of the controversial writer.

A level of "classiness" is attained, often on accord of the dynamic chemistry between Irons and Campbell, who in my opinion surprised Hollywood with this great performance in an extended supporting role. Sissy Spacek was also impressive, despite her only being in the film for about twenty minutes, her appearances are very memorable, and she is absolutely magnificent.

Other than the acting by Irons, Campbell and Spacek, there's really nothing that jumps out about this film. However it is an interesting look into the life of the influential and controversial writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. 6/10
