What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Last Shift is a drama about a man (Richard Jenkins) who's leaving his graveyard shift job at a fast-food restaurant after 38 years and must train his young replacement (Shane Paul McGhie). It tackles many social issues, including systemic racism (the main White character doesn't believe it exists). Expect lots of strong language, including "f--k," "s--t," and more. A character is mugged, whacked on the back of the head, and knocked unconscious (mild bloody wounds are shown). There's discussion of a racially motivated murder, arguing, and a comical traffic-related accident. A main character smokes pot, and both main characters smoke cigarettes on more than one occasion. A carload of teen boys is said to be drunk (they "smell of hooch"). A man smokes what appears to be meth (in a glass pipe). Minor characters appear drunk. Focusing on character development, the film realistically portrays the struggles of small-town lives, encouraging empathy from viewers.
