The Last Hurrah

Filmmaker Jonathan Stokes directorial debut film The Last Hurrah made it’s world premiere in competition at the 2009 Dances With Film Festival. In the spirit of Richard Linklater and Woody Allen, The Last Hurrah is a smart, witty, ensemble driven comedy that wonders if the over examined life is really worth living. Filmed in one continuous shot, The Last Hurrah follows 15 characters for 86 minutes. Set at a graduation party in Los Angeles, an eclectic group of brainy philosophy students, a train-hopping hippie, aspiring prophets, and drug-addled hipsters come together for one wild night.
