"The Last Word"

We spend a lot of time in Highland Park with Amanda Seyfried and Shirley MacLaine in Mark Pellington's "The Last Word" (Bleeker Street Media, 2017).  The neighborhood is standing in for a California town called Bristol. Amanda's an obituary writer at the local paper, the Bristol Gazette, and Shirley hires her to write her obit -- only she realizes that she needs to change her life to get the writeup she wants.

Amanda and Thomas Sadoski across the street from the Highland on their first date. He runs the local alternative radio station where Shirley MacLaine becomes a DJ at the age of 81.

See the page about the Highland Theatre on the Los Angeles Theatres site for more data and photos.
