Perched in the far corner of a run-down New England mall, The Red Lobster hasnt been making its numbers and headquarters has pulled the plug. But manager Manny DeLeon still needs to navigate a tricky last shift. With only four shopping days left until Christmas, Manny must convince his near-mutinous staff to hunker down and serve the final onslaught of hungry retirees, lunatics, and holiday office parties. All the while, hes wondering how to handle the waitress hes still in love with, his pregnant girlfriend at home, and the perfect present he still needs to buy. Last Night at the Lobsteris a poignant yet redemptive look at what a man does when he discovers that his best might not be good enough.
