Movie Info

A tale of self-reflection and the importance of facing trauma, LAST NIGHT IN ROZZIE is a testament to the importance of confronting your past. Ronnie Russo (Neil Brown Jr, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON), a successful lawyer in New York, is summoned back to his old Boston neighborhood, Roslindale, by his childhood best friend Joey Donovan (Jeremy Sisto, SIX FEET UNDER). Now on his deathbed, Joey has only one request for Ronnie--help him reunite with his 10-year-old son. Sympathetic to Joey's situation, Ronnie works to get closer to Joey's estranged ex-wife Pattie (Nicky Whelan, KNIGHT OF CUPS) to fulfill his friend's dying wish. However, the more he learns about the man that Joey has become, the more he questions his mission. Returning to his hometown after 25 years, Ronnie is forced to reconcile his traumatic past rooted in the last night he and Joey spent together as kids, and the repercussions that followed.

Critic Reviews for Last Night in Rozzie

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

It gets a bit overwrought as certain personal histories are explained.

September 24, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

...may not have the star power of large scale adult melodramas, but its independent spirit, universal story and Sisto's remarkable performance might be the right find for cinephiles...

September 24, 2021 | Full Review…

A well written story that makes some odd choices but is an overall enjoyable watch.

September 17, 2021 | Full Review…

Connects as something similar to a detective story, portioning out pieces of personal history to give the tale a decent level of dramatic escalation without the satisfaction of a great ending.

September 15, 2021 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Slack pacing and generally flat performances rob "Last Night" of any urgency and lower the stakes.

September 14, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Gannet, who also helmed a short version of Last Night in Rozzie, makes some odd choices. But he is great with the cast, and they repay him with fine work.
