A moving and artsy drama set in beautiful Oregon
14 December 2020 | by robinhoodinmoscowSee all my reviews

Mahalia Cohen delivers a poignant drama about an aging songwriter meeting an unexpected muse. Jaime Leopold is totally charismatic and likeable in the lead role. Subtle photography of a little known part of Oregon. The Last Hot Lick is a gentle ride with underlaying questioning about self-accomplishment and the power of art and giving. Brilliant.
