‘Last Call,’ Film Comedy With Philly Suburb Ties, Continues to Stream on Paramount+
Last Call, a movie with deep area roots, continues streaming on Paramount+.
The 2021 film is loosely based on the experiences of Upper Darby High School Class of 1990 graduate Greg Lingo, executive producer and co-writer with director Paolo Pilladi, reported Dawn Timmeney at FOX29 News.
The film stars:
- Jeremy Piven
- Two-time Oscar nominee Bruce Dern
- Taryn Manning
- Fellow Upper Darbians Jamie Kenney and Cheri Oteri
- Raging Bull Oscar nominee Cathy Moriarty
- Jack McGee
- Zach McGowan
Piven portrays Mick, a successful real estate developer, who returns to his offbeat, blue-collar neighborhood in “Darby Heights” for a funeral. He winds up trying to save the family bar and reconnecting with the neighborhood he tried to escape.
Lingo, who also happens to be a successful real estate developer living in Wayne, says the film comes from a collection of stories he and his neighborhood buddies put together.
“This is a slice-of-life comedy. It’s really just a way to celebrate the intricacies and uniqueness of people and the bond we had they’re very translatable whether you are from outside of Philly or inside Philly,” Lingo explained.
