Tom and Susie Brymer recommended this movie, and it is another tale related to something that most of our regulars at the BCP Sunday Movies are familiar with - growing older.  Burt Reynolds passed away last month at the age of 82, and this screening will be the Film Club's tribute to him.  Although he was not considered a "great" actor, he was very personable and popular and worked hard at his craft.  I didn't know until researching for this announcement that Reynolds was voted the most popular star in the U.S. for five years straight from 1977 to 1982.

From Roger Ebert.com;
Adam Rifkin's "The Last Movie Star" is designed not just as a vehicle for Burt Reynolds, but as a meditation on Reynolds' fame. Using elements of Reynolds' actual biography, including footage from Reynolds' films, "The Last Movie Star" is the story of an actor who, despite his fame and good fortune, feels he never quite lived up to his potential. Maybe he could have had a more "serious" career if he had taken some risks. This is Rifkin's point of view, too. "The Last Movie Star" thrums with Rifkin's urgency, similar to Linda Loman's comment at the end of "Death of a Salesman": "Attention must be paid." (Some of us never stopped paying attention to Reynolds, but never mind.) As a commentary on Reynolds' career trajectory, "The Last Movie Star" is hit-or-miss. What is undeniable, though, is the space Rifkin has created where Reynolds can do what Reynolds does best, and if you're a fan (as I am) there's much here to treasure.
