“Got to show you this, what do you think?” “You’re being honored. You’ll be presented with a lifetime achievement award.” Look who the previous winners are; Robert DeNiro, Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood.” In ‘The Last Movie Star’ Burt Reynolds plays an aging actor named Vic Edwards who was very popular in his earlier career. He was a college football player, then a stunt double and then a leading man. He heads to Nashville (after getting advice from a friend played by Chevy Chase) to get a lifetime achievement award.
“You should see this rat hole.” “You’re there already just enjoy it.” “What the hell is this?” “This is the festival. Welcome to Nashville.” Instead of being given a hotel suite and pampered he’s invited to a tiny, two-bit film festival in Nashville, and befriends his driver, who reminds him there’s more to life than just being famous. “Why the hell are you even here?” “Because Clint, Jack and Bobby DeNiro are all alive.” “You are the only one stupid enough to show up.”
“Where are you guys?” “He’s on some weird memory tour or something.” ‘The Last Movie Star’ (formerly Dog Years) written and directed by Adam Rifkin is a tale about faded fame, but at its core, it’s a universal story about growing old. The film starring Burt Reynolds, Ariel Winter, Clark Duke, Ellar Coltrane, Nikki Blonsky and Chevy Chase premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. The film is set for release on March 30, 2018.
