There are people who think this is stupid dedicate your life to movies. The movies are frivolous. Fleeting. It doesn’t matter. On that, says screenwriting director Jonathan Nossiter, they could be your celebrities Last Words.
It’s the title of a new movie starring Nick Nolte, Stellan Skarsgårdand Charlotte Rampling. It’s set in 2085, after the Tsumani decimated most of the world leaving only a few precious people alive. Among them is Kal, played by rookie Kalipha Touray. He thinks he is the last person on Earth but when he comes to meet a group of people who are very different from himself, he discovers not only humanity … but a cinema. Watch the trailer for Last Words, which looks like a postapocalyptic Paradise cinema.
Things start to get pretty dark in that trailer, but as you can see, Kal is starting to learn about how pictures, and especially movies, can capture history and preserve history. What’s going on from there, well, that’s why you pay to see the movie. But this trailer really looks like a blend of post-apocalyptic drama with a very unique story of appreciating and preserving the film. And, if you step away from that, it also seems to be a movie that would explain why movies can be so important. They’re not just fun, they’re not just art, they’re forever shots of our wildest dreams and cruelest realities.
Plus, I mean, come on. You can’t go wrong with multiple Oscar and Emmy nominations like Nolte, Skarsgård and Rampling. They are some of our best actors, but they happen to be in those years when they may not have as many opportunities as some others. So it’s great to see them in anything, let alone in something cool and unique Last Words.
Last Words will be released in cinemas on request on December 17. What do you think about the trailer? Will you ask for this one?
