Only Shirley MacLaine could play Harriet Lauler in Mark Pellington’s THE LAST WORD! Take a look at MacLaine in this new clip from THE LAST WORD as Harriet gets a job – as a disc jockey.
In THE LAST WORD, Shirley MacLaine is Harriet Lauler, a once successful businesswoman in tight control of every aspect of her life. As she reflects upon her accomplishments, she’s suddenly inspired to engage a young local writer, Anne Sherman (Amanda Seyfried), to pen her obituary. . .before she’s dead. When the initial result doesn’t meet Harriet’s high expectations, she sets out to reshape the way she is remembered, with Anne dragged along as an unwilling accomplice. As the journey unfolds, the two women develop a unique bond which alters not only Harriet’s legacy, but also Anne’s future.
THE LAST WORD is directed by Mark Pellington with script by Stuart Ross Fink and stars Shirley MacLaine, Amanda Seyfried, newcomer Ann’Jewel Lee, Tom Everett Scott, Gedde Watanabe, Joel Murray, Philip Baker Hall, Thomas Sadoski and Anne Heche.
THE LAST WORD is in theatres March 3rd.
