This adaptation of Graham Swift's 1996 Booker Prize winning novel Last Orders by writer/director Fred Schepisi is an affecting movie about death, friendship and booze starring a first rate cast of British actors. Jack Dodds (Michael Caine) was a regular guy, so why the strange last order to have his ashes thrown off the pier at Margate? And why did his wife Amy (Helen Mirren) refuse to do it? As their Mercedes speeds towards the sea, an emotional mystery unfolds, where the men try to understand Jack's death by reliving their life through him... the war, the children, the good times and the bad. The journey becomes a pub crawl full of drink-ups and punch-ups and the men discover that through it all, it's your friends who break your heart and... and your friends who mend it.
