SXSW 2012 Preview - "The Last Fall" Gets An Updated Trailer w/ New Footage

No big intro necessary for this one I’m sure; everyone should know about it by now, given how much we’ve covered it, including the filmmaker himself sharing his journey with us via the Filmmaker Diary Series.

As announced earlier this week, Matthew Cherry’s feature directorial debut The Last Fall will make its world premiere at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival.

The film stars Lance GrossNicole Beharie, and Vanessa Bell Calloway.

The full synopsis again reads:

After several years in the playing professional football, Kyle Bishop is released from his fourth team in three years and returns to his home town, broke and at a complete loss about what he will do for a living. After an initially cold reception, Kyle reconnects with Faith Davis, his old high school sweetheart. Ready to leave football far in the past, Kyle gets a job at a local gym and starts planning a new life with Faith and her young son, Von. However, when Kyle unexpectedly gets a lucrative offer from another professional team, and the father of Faith’s son, Rell, tries to win his way back in her life, he is torn about what path to take.

A SXSW trailer for the film popped up online a couple of days ago and I embedded it below; I’ll be at SXSW and this will be on my short list of films to see while there:
