The drama Last Call will debut on DVD, Blu-ray, digital and VOD Feb. 23 from Mill Creek Entertainment.
From director Gavin Michael Booth, the film tells the story of two strangers destined to intervene in each other’s lives after a misdial links them together forever. Beth (Sarah Booth) is a late-night janitor who accidentally answers a call from Scott (Daved Wilkins) who believes he has dialed a suicide prevention hotline. The film presents both ends of a harrowing phone call that has Beth navigating a life-changing conversation as she attempts to aide Scott within her limited means.
A split screen real-time feature film, the entire movie is comprised of two single-take shots, merged together and without cuts as the film plays out with two camera crews in different parts of a city as we follow each character through their happenstance encounter. The score for the film was also composed and recorded in real-time by Adrian Ellis to add to the aesthetic.
Last Call has won awards in a variety of film festivals, including Best Actress for Sarah Booth in the CKF International Film Festival as well as the Hamilton Film Festival. Gavin Michael Booth won best director in the Satisfied Eye International Film Festival.
