  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

The Last Minute is a darkly comic tale of fame, delusion and the high price of failure. Young, good-looking and talented Billy Byrne (Max Beesley) is on the brink of 'making it big'. He's the 'talk of the town', the 'next big thing'. His agent, his best mate and his girlfriend all know it - come Monday, Billy will be up there with the 'big boys'. But Monday brings disaster, Billy's anticipated triumphant debut flops. His world falls apart. As Billy desperately tries to rationalise his failure the abyss of obscurity looms before him and a dark world of murderers and thieves beckons.
