WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Ben and Jeeter meet each summer at a desolate California trailer park, inextricably bound to one another by the time they served together in Vietnam. Jeeter is an associate professor at a small liberal college and a restless wanderer, regularly following the Rolling Stones so he can display his homemade sign urging them to "Just Stop." Ben is a homebody who refuses to abandon his rusted-out-trailer even though it sits atop a toxic waste dump. While Jeeter suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, Ben is haunted by the ghost of a fallen soldier and a lingering feeling of betrayal by the government. Ben and Jeeter's boy-will-be-boys bond has stood the test of time for over 20 years, but when Jeeter's young and unpredictable new girlfriend arrives on the scene with her opinionated mother in tow, time-tested rituals give way to confessions of self-discoveries...the past may finally be catching up with them at last. Last of the Boys is a fierce, funny, and mesmerizing character study that speaks to America's situation in Iraq by revealing lessons still to be learned from Vietnam. By Steven Dietz Directed by Paul Meshejian
