the last shift
The workplace drama comes to UK cinemas in November.

Writer/director Andrew Cohn's feature debut The Last Shift stars Richard Jenkins as Stanley, an aging employee of a fast food restaurant working his final shift after four decades of unquestioning service. Spending the shift training his replacement, a disgruntled young writer (Shane Paul McGhie), Stanley begins to question how he's spent his life.

The Last Shift is in UK cinemas from November 13th.

Check out the UK trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

The Last Shift is an American story about two men struggling in the same town, while worlds apart. Stanley (Richard Jenkins), an aging fast-food worker, plans to call it quits after 38 years on the graveyard shift at Oscar’s Chicken and Fish. His last weekend takes a turn while training his replacement, Jevon (Shane Paul McGhie), a talented but stalled young writer whose provocative politics keep landing him in trouble. These two who share little in common are brought together through circumstance. Stanley, a high school dropout who has watched life pass by his drive-through window, proudly details the nuances of the job. While Jevon, a columnist who’s too smart to be flipping patties, contends their labour is being exploited. A flicker of comradery sparks during the long overnight hours in a quiet kitchen.
