WATCH: “Last Call” trailer of Dylan Thomas film

Last Call posterLast Call, a film about Dylan Thomas, one of the twentieth century’s most influential lyrical poets, will soon be released in selected theaters.

The film stars Rhys Ifans (Misbehavior, Berlin Station) as the iconic poet while Academy Award-nominee John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, Places in the Heart) plays Dr. Felton, Thomas’ confidant and enabler. Last Call also stars Rodrigo Santoro (Westworld), Romola Garai (Atonement), Tony Hale (Veep) and Zosia Mamet (Girls).

Here is the official synopsis of the film:

“The story begins in New York City on Thomas’ final tour in 1953 – a tour that was meant to save him from ruin. The Welsh poet’s reputation for heavy drinking and philandering would soon be forgotten as eager audiences are captivated by his poetry lectures. Full of poetry, passion, and an ultimate betrayal, the poet who gave us Do not go gentle into that good night, Under Milkwood, and stories and broadcasts such as A Child’s Christmas in Wales and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog, rages, loves and fights against the gathering darkness. One day at the local White Horse Tavern, he drinks 18 doublescotches, naming each one after his life experience. Soon his fantasies, his memories, and an uncertain present blend into a wild, surreal farewell to the world.”

Last Call will open in select Los Angeles and Orange County theaters on November 25.
