Burt Reynolds is 'The Last Movie Star' coming to digital on 20 August 2018

Hollywood legend Burt Reynolds is The Last Movie Star, a wry and witty take on the film industry through the eyes of a washed up star and his enduring fans.

Movie legend Vic Edwards (Reynolds – Smokey and the Bandit, Boogie Nights) is a hard drinking, long in the tooth star whose glory days are behind him. When he's approached by a Nashville film festival to receive a Lifetime Achievement award his first instinct is to say no. But on the advice of his old buddy Sonny (Chevy Chase – National Lampoon's Vacation, Caddy Shack), he reluctantly decides to take the trip…what could possibly go wrong?

He soon discovers a whole new meaning of small time…The venue is a dive bar, the accommodation a 'rathole', the organisers inexperienced fanboys and his driver is a rebellious teen with an attitude, played in a stand out performance by Modern Family's Ariel Winter.

From a less than promising start Vic embarks on an expected adventure with an unlikely companion
in this heart-warming and moving comedy.

Directed by Adam Rifkin (Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy) and starring Clark Duke (Hot Tub Time
Machine) and Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood), as the festival organisers, The Last Movie Star arrives exclusively on-demand and download on 20 August 2018.
