Last Look  USA / 2013 / 82 mins

Last Look is a domestic horror film that blurs the line between fantasy and reality, the theater and real life. Based on true events, the story probes beneath the shiny surface of suburbia to discover sadomasochistic violence, savage theatricality, role-playing and abuse. Betsy Beutler stars as Susan, a square-jawed young woman who returns to her secluded childhood home after her twin sister dies. She is soon drawn into a dangerous drama that is being played out by her faded actress mother, Barbara (Jill Jacobson) and her obsessive film-maker brother (Josh Watson). The sociopathic Barbara has written a play, entitled “Best Performance” and is using her children as her cast. The scenes are filled with painful longing, tender romanticism, and past humiliations. Susan is drawn into her family’s theatrical world and is also aroused by Bill, and in trying to aid him, she discovers her dark side. As the film nears its conclusion, our heroine learns that she must give the performance of her life in order to survive the night.
