Overview

Two teenagers, each dealing with a different set of emotional burdens, find love and understanding with each other in The Last Best Sunday. Lolly Ann (Angela Bettis) is a high-school student in Pickley, a small agricultural community in California where she's growing up under the thumb of her strict, deeply religious mother (Kim Darby). Joseph (Douglas Spain), on the other hand, is struggling to get along without his parents; he came to Pickley with his family as migrant workers, but opted to stay on after his folks left so he could finish his final year of high school and earn his diploma. However, Joseph finds Hispanics are not always welcome here; a pair of bullies beat him savagely, and when he tries to get revenge, he finds town's bigoted sheriff (William Lucking) is after him. On the run, Joseph breaks into what he thinks is an empty house, only to find Lolly Ann at home while her parents are away for the weekend. Once she overcomes her initial fear and distrust, Lolly Ann finds she has a lot more in common with Joseph than she thought, and a grudging respect soon grows into affection. The Last Best Sunday was directed by Don Most, who as Donny Most is best remembered for playing Ralph Malf on the sit-com Happy Days; his former co-star Marion Ross briefly appears in a supporting role.

I loved Spain's performance as Joseph. He had the most difficult lines and pulled them off well. Teen life is tough isn't it? In this race relations/comming of age film, Lolly Ann Summers is left at home to enjoy a weekend at home away from her overly religous parents. Joseph on the other hand, hasn't led a very sheltered life. He and his Mexican migrant farmer parents moved to Pickely Calafornia for work. When two local roughs savagly beat him he gets revenge by killing them. He breaks into a nearby house thinking that it's empty. It's Lolly's. Once they overcome their distrust of each other, Lolly and Joseph develop a genuine affection for each other. Now their biggest fear is the town's racist sheriff. They know they can't hide for ever and Joseph won't be treated kindly if he is captured. When Lolly offers to explain his actions to sheriff Weaks, a distraught Joseph tells her '' What they did to me just won't matter.'', but will it?
