Flick City 44: Filmmakers Sean Gannet And Ryan McDonough Craft A Resonant And Realistic Tale With Memorable ‘Last Night In Rozzie’

Last Night In Rozzie, the story of a lawyer named Ronnie (Neil Brown Jr.) who tries to grant his childhood best friend Joey’s (Jeremy Sisto) dying wish, took me by surprise. I wasn’t expecting to be personally affected by this film, but the drama featured excellent performances (including Nicky Whelan as Joey’s ex-wife) and an immersive narrative that packed a punch during its lean and mean 80 minute run time.

Director Sean Gannet and writer Ryan McDonough were also forthcoming and amiable during our chat, which actually lasted a lot longer than I anticipated. I also asked McDonough a spoiler question regarding Joey’s fate during our interview, and that clip is available for our CinemAddicts Patreon members
