Sony Pictures has released the official trailer for The Last Shift, the upcoming comedy starring Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins.
The Last Shift is an American story about two men struggling in the same town, while worlds apart. Stanley (Richard Jenkins), 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 labor is being exploited. A flicker of camaraderie sparks during the long overnight hours in a quiet kitchen.
The movie also stars Shane Paul McGhie, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, and Golden Globe nominee Ed O’Neil. The Last Shift was written and directed by Andrew Cohn. The movie was executive produced by Alexander Payne and Lance Acord. Producers include Albert Berger, Ron Yerxa, Sam Bisbee, Alex Lipschultz, and Bert Kern.
The Last Shift will release in theaters on September 25.
