THE LAST is two-time Sundance Film Festival veteran filmmaker Jeff Lipsky’s (FLANNEL PAJAMAS) latest provocative film. Tony Award winning actor Reed Birney (THE HUMANS) and the remarkable nonagenarian actress Rebecca Schull (LITTLE CHILDREN) lead an ensemble cast in this riveting story about a Holocaust survivor, albeit one with a shocking twist. Josh and his fiancé Olivia, both 28-year-old teachers, both devout followers of modern Orthodox Judaism (she a recent convert from Catholicism), meet their beloved 92-year-old great-grandmother Claire for a beach outing. After lunch, Claire makes a shattering confession to the two people she most adores: she was never a Jew, and her life was saved by a gynecologist who went on to become one of the Holocaust’s most inhuman monsters…and she was his nurse at Auschwitz.
