ReelWorks Studios and Fathom Events release their latest film When We Last Spoke, a heartwarming tale of family, friendship and forgiveness featuring Corbin Bernsen (“Psych,” “L.A. Law”), Melissa Gilbert (“Little House on the Prairie”), Darby Camp (“Big Little Lies,” The Christmas Chronicles), Chandler Head (The Glass Castle) and Academy award-winning actress, Cloris Leachman (I Can Only Imagine, The Last Picture Show). When We Last Spoke will open in movie theaters for an exclusive two night showing October 27 and 29, 2020.
Following the lovable and nutty family of sisters Juliet and Evangeline, When We Last Spoke gives viewers an insight into the beauty of the Cranbournes as they journey through the ups and downs of their unexpected situation.
In 1967, sisters Juliet (Darby Camp) and Evangeline (Chandler Head) are abandoned by their mother at their unsuspecting grandparents’ farm in the small southern town of Fireside. Stunned by their sudden arrival, tender-hearted Walt (Corbin Bernsen) and champion fiddler Ruby (Melissa Gilbert) graciously stand in for the missing parents and create one blue-ribbon recipe for a loving family. Fireside, home of radio Station KOFF, kept secrets, broken promises and to-die-for sundaes serves as the backdrop for this heartwarming story full of surprises. Top it all off with the unexpected appearance of Walt’s ailing mother—eccentric, Emily Dickinson-quoting Itasca (Cloris Leachman), and laughter and tears abound. Richly packed with plenty of quirky characters and hilarious escapades, When We Last Spoke is a timeless movie for all ages that digs in deep to things that matter most—family, friends, love, and forgiveness.
Inspired by the novel from Marci Henna, director Joanne Hock and screenplay writers Rick Eldridge and Jimmy Hager pack When We Last Spoke with humor, heartbreak and triumph.
“When We Last Spoke is a warm-hearted story that follows the life of a funny, quirky family who have experienced their fair share of trials,” says Rick Eldridge. “In partnership with Fathom Events, we are pleased to be bringing a film to theaters that speaks to the important topics of family, love and forgiveness.”
