From multi-award winning director James Kicklighter, Final Acts is the story of a revered actress' return to her roots as seen through the lens of an aspiring filmmaker, exploring the tenuous relationship between life and performance.
After missing his chance at a promotion with his championship team, a respected but aging football coach relocates to a small town to head up a lowly college team that's strapped for players, money, and respect.
This film portrays the growing gap between the generation texters and the oldest generation that had to communicate using speech and eye contact and touch. The older lady gives a sense of the loneliness that comes as we age and become isolated. The young texter portrays a generation that is disconnected from eye contact and speech but is isolated in a world that revolves around technology and has become cold and alone. I really enjoyed the nice hand touch at the end between the two as the generations came together briefly and then the texter really brings it home at the end as he wonders if he ever talks to anyone at all. Very nice thought provoking film. The two actors really seemed to connect on several levels leaving me wanting more. Well done Mr. Kicklighter.
