The Last Shift is an American story about two men struggling in the same town, while worlds apart. Stanley (Richard Jenkins), an aging fast-food worker, plans to call it quits after 38 years on the graveyard shift at Oscar’s Chicken and Fish. His last weekend takes a turn while training his replacement, Jevon (Shane Paul McGhie), a talented but stalled young writer whose provocative politics keep landing him in trouble. These two who share little in common are brought together through circumstance. Stanley, a high school dropout who has watched life pass by his drive-through window, proudly details the nuances of the job. While Jevon, a columnist who’s too smart to be flipping patties, contends their labour is being exploited. A flicker of comradery sparks during the long overnight hours in a quiet kitchen.
The film also stars Ed O’Neill, Allison Tolman, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, and Birgundi Baker.
The Last Shift will get an UK and Irish Cinema release from 13th November.
