    I went to see Last Orders today. I haven't seen any coverage on this, but it was playing at the Anjelika theater in Dallas, and it was pretty good. It's a subtle british movie about a group of old codgers who go on a road trip to spread the ashes of one of their own. It has a monumental cast, true workhorses of british cinema, and a decent central story, which ties together several side stories done in very well executed flashback sequences, which sum up the story of the deceased character, as well as the group. The movie is very well done, with good performances by all. Check out the cast...
    Michael Caine - Ipcress File, Get Carter, Sleuth
    Helen Mirren - Excalibur, Madness of King George, Gosford Park
    Bob Hoskins - Roger Rabbit, Super Mario Bros. [​IMG] , Enemy at the Gates
    David Hemmings - Blowup, Deep Red, Gladiator
    Tom Courtenay - Billy Liar, Doctor Zhivago
    Ray Winstone - Sexy Beast, Nil by Mouth

    A subtle but solid film. Check it out if you get the chance.

    Is this the only Last Orders thread? I watched it last night and I loved it and I figured there would be more than just Ben and me talking about it!
