On a flight from New York to Ireland for his mother’s funeral, Daniel (Michiel Huisman) talks briefly with an elderly man seated next to him on the plane. When the plane lands and the man is discovered to have died en route, Daniel is shocked to find that he has been listed as the dead man’s next of kin. Now, on top of dealing with his own mother’s death and strained family relationships, Daniel is charged with bringing the body of a stranger from West Cork to Rathlin Island for burial. Along for the ride is Daniel’s autistic brother, Louis, and an eccentric young mortician, Mary. As sparks fly between Daniel and Mary, and tensions rise between Daniel and Louis, the legality of the corpse transportation is called into question, and the cops, led by Detective Crowley (Colm Meaney), are quickly on their trail… making for a road trip no one will soon forget. An accidental Bonnie and Clyde adventure, THE LAST RIGHT is a charming dramedy filled with mishaps, romance, and family secrets. — G.S.
