| Loved it! Isn't for the Average Moviergoer
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.
