In The Last Word Shirley MacLaine plays Harriet, a cranky and wealthy old woman who was once a successful businesswoman with tight control over every aspect of her life. As she reflects upon her life’s accomplishments, she’s suddenly inspired to engage a young local writer, Anne Sherman (Amanda Seyfried), to pen her life story. When the initial result doesn’t meet Harriet’s high expectations, she sets out to reshape the way she is remembered, with Anne dragged along as an unwilling accomplice. As the journey unfolds, the two women develop a unique bond that alters not only Harriet’s legacy, but also Anne’s future.
