A guy's life is turned around by an email, which includes the names of everyone he's had sex with and ever will have sex with. His situation gets worse when he encounters a femme fatale (Ryder) who targets men guilty of sex crime.
Evan keeps to himself, almost without affect. He's 30, a former foster child, living alone, writing suicide notes for people. He attends a client's funeral and meets Charlotte, the client's sister. She pursues Evan; he's silent about his real work and invents a friendship with the brother. About the same time, Evan starts working with Abel, a new client, a composer of phone-waiting music who's depressed. Evan confides in Abel about Charlotte as she begins to draw him out. Crises await the self-contained Evan: his relationship with Charlotte is based on a lie, and his incipient friendship with Abel is headed toward suicide. Are more dead ends ahead?Written by
According to an interview he gave to the New York Times in 2010, this movie was made during the middle of Wes Bentley's decade-long, extremely serious addiction to cocaine and heroin. He said in that interview that he only accepted any movie roles during that time so that he would have money to buy enough drugs. See more »

So now they want me to start over and write some hack Mozart crap so the customers can smarten up and answer their own tech support questions while they're on hold.

The Last Word . . . I saw this movie on Netflix yesterday. I Loved this movie (I would shout but not allowed). "The Last Word" isn't for everyone. If you are one of those usual moviegoers that like to see the same boring subject regurgitated repeatedly by Hollywood, don't watch this; you are too boring to "get it." The screenplay is brilliant. Wes Bentley's performance . . . WhaT?!!! Who is this guy? I could feel his isolated, closed down personality; and how uncomfortable he was "in his own skin" with himself and others.
Haley wrote and directed this! What a performance he got out of Winona and Romano. Yes, of course, acting has a lot to do with that, but the script is . . . WoW!
The ending just blew me away. Now I am on my way to seek other works of Haley and Bentley.
When watching this movie, I was actually thinking, "That would be a great business to start." Yeah I know, I am a little more twisted than the average moviegoer.
I have recommended this movie to my family and friends because they are interesting and so am I.
Was this nominated for a Spirit Award? If it wasn't, they suck.
It's now July 26, 2013 . . . wow I've been away a long time. I just found this movie for sale at Blockbuster, new and inexpensive, since Blockbuster will soon be out of business. I don't think I like all of the movie stores (Hollywood Video, Blockbuster) closing down.
