A beautiful film that made me laugh and cry and happy to be alive
I got to see "One Last Thing..." at the Toronto Film Festival while visiting friends. I loved Alex Steyermark's previous film, "Prey for Rock & Roll" - and couldn't believe my luck that I was in Toronto during the premiere of this new film (although I missed all the fun of the premiere and saw it at the second screening). I didn't know what to expect, but this film is completely different. I don't know how to describe it without giving out spoilers - this film is a complete surprise, incredibly funny and incredibly poignant - and you feel good about laughing at the jokes and crying at the sad stuff. It made me appreciate the people in my life. All of the acting is excellent across the board - and the three kids are the most real group of teenagers I've ever seen on film. The script strikes the perfect balance of emotions without getting sappy. The music is amazing. At the screening, the director said he expected a wide release next Spring (2006), so all I can say is go see it when it comes out.
