After the American playwright and actor Sam Shepard had played the role of the ghost in Michael Almereyda's Hamlet, Shepard invited the filmmaker to document rehearsals for his The Late Henry Moss, that he staged with Nick Nolte and Sean Penn in leading roles. Almereyda and his crew filmed the last three weeks before the première. The film combines interviews with Shepard, his actors and staff with images of the rehearsals. The result is both a portrait and a unique glimpse of top actors seeking their way through the material. The film also offers a survey of the career of Shepard, including a report of his stormy relationship with his father, who died in 1984.Written by

It's all About the work You see that these actors are really in love with the process
I just wanted to say that if you want to see work that is raw simple and pure the this film will give you the truth about how these actors work...all different...but you will see the growth and the Ensemble world of acting...on a professional level...and Mr. Shepard is a very fine director with his cast...of stars...just doing their work...enjoy...it's clean and full of honesty...keep in mind it's a play not a film...and so the beauty is you will see actors you are familiar with in FILM doing the age old art of theater...the roots of their work and the opportunity to be live with an audience...it's what makes this such a great film to see ...it's not on the set of a movie...and that makes this a RARE opportunity for Would be and Could be actors to watch the PROCESS not only the performance...it's as I said about the work..
Sincerely Michael Savage
