THE LAST FALL
- THE LAST FALL
- 2012, Matthew A. Cherry, USA, 97 min.
- With Lance Gross, Nicole Beharie
The envy of family and friends, hunky football player Kyle Bishop (Gross) is hiding a secret that shames him: his NFL team has unceremoniously dumped him. He slinks back home to mom, broke and unemployed at the age of 25. Director Cherry, a former NFL wide receiver, entertainingly reveals the unknown side of a pro sports career as Kyle puzzles over how to earn a living when all he knows is football. For his actively dating mother, wary sister, and hometown friends, life has moved on without him. A chance meeting with his former sweetheart, now the single mom of a young son, becomes a very particular kind of wake-up call. Digital video. (BS)
