THE LAST FACE is a drama film directed by Sean Penn (Into the Wild) and written by Erin Dignam. It was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, and reveived generally poor reviews from critics.
The story centers around a love affair between Dr. Miguel Leon (Javier Bardem), a relief-aid doctor, and Dr. Wren Petersen (Charlize Theron), the director of an international aid organization. French actors Adèle Exarchopoulos (Blue Is the Warmest Colour) and Jean Reno also star in the film.
Set against the devastating backdrop of war-torn Liberia, Miguel and Wren must find a way to keep their relationship alive in extraordinarily difficult conditions battling their mutual passion for the value of life matched by the intensity of their diametrically opposed opinions on how best to solve the conflict that surrounds them.
