The Last Shift
Dir.: Andrew Cohn
Starring: Richard Jenkins, Shane Paul McGhie
The Last Shift is an American story about two men struggling in the same town, while worlds apart. Stanley (two-time Oscar® nominee Richard Jenkins: Best Actor, The Visitor, 2009; Best Supporting Actor, The Shape of Water, 2017), 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.

This is the world Emma and Jude find themselves in not long after meeting and falling in love.
