The Icelandic drama “End of Sentence” was actually shot back in early 2017, but is just now set to debut in the States later this year. The movie follows a widower who reluctantly sets out to honor his deceased wife’s last wishes of spreading her ashes near a lake in her native Ireland. But first he has to convince her estranged son, fresh out of prison, to make the trip with him.
The film is directed by Elfar Adalsteins and stars John Hawkes as the widower and Logan Lerman as the son. It looks to be a story of mending relationships in a fractured family and the first trailer seems interesting despite looking a little predictable. But I’m a big fan of Hawkes going back to his work in “Winter’s Bone” so I’ll watch him in just about anything.
“End of Sentence” is set for a May 29th limited release. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
