"Is there just one thing you can say about her that is 'nice'?" Bleecker Street has released the trailer for an amusing indie drama titled The Last Word, from director Mark Pellington (Arlington Road, Mothman Prophecies,Henry Poole Is Here), starring Shirley MacLaine as an aging business woman who decides to craft her obituary before her death.

The cast includes Anne Heche, Thomas Sadoski, Alanna Ubach, Adina Porter, Tom Everett Scott, Joel Murray and Sarah Baker. This is premiering at Sundance in early 2017. Take a look. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Mark Pellington's The Last Word, direct from YouTube: In The Last Word, Shirley MacLaine is Harriet Lauler, a once successful businesswoman in tight control »

MaryAnn’s quick take… The ultimate anti-disaster movie. A supremely gripping and powerfully emotional film about, paradoxically, what happens when everything works as it should. I’m “biast” (pro): I remember that day vividly…
I’m “biast” (con): …but I worried about how it would be dramatized
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
I was still living in New York in January 2009 when Chesley Sullenberger landed a commercial airliner full of passengers on the Hudson River.
Landed a commercial airliner on the Hudson River.
Not in. On.
And almost everyone walked away unhurt. A bit cold and wet. One flight attendant got a nasty cut on her leg. We didn’t know that at the time. All we knew was that a goddamn plane had landed on the river and everything was fine.
It almost sounds like that »
