In “One Last Thing,” Dylan Derringer (Wendell Pierce, the upcoming Jack Ryan series, TV’s The Wire), a lonely dentist in Florida, is reunited with his long-lost daughter Lucy (Jurnee Smollett-Bell, TV’s Friday Night Lights and Underground) after years apart. This sends him on an eventful and ultimately life-changing journey of discovery that includes the person closest to him, Jamie (Joanne Froggatt, TV’s Downton Abbey). Directed and written by Tim Rouhana, the film illustrates the importance of fatherhood and the true meaning of family.
“One Last Thing” is the first movie to be released under Screen Media’s new Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment Releasing banner, which brings inspirational, entertaining and uplifting stories to movie audiences everywhere
