Movie Info

Hollywood icon Mickey Rooney stars in Last Will and Embezzlement, a 72-minute feature-length documentary inspired by the recent true-life events in the family of Starjack partner, Pamela S. K. Glasner. Our hope is that Last Will and Embezzlement will shine a light on this global problem, help those who have potentially-vulnerable adults in their lives to be on the look-out for signs of victimization, and maybe even make some waves in the communities where the rights of these citizens are not being looked after and protected by the public servants and law enforcement officials who are charged with that responsibility. -- (C) Starjack Entertainment

Critic Reviews for Last Will and Embezzlement

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

The film has a bare-bones look that only intensifies its nearly painful sincerity.

Given the overarching structural messiness that defines its examination of elder financial abuse, the only thing Last Will and Embezzlement has in the right place is its heart.

Top Critic

This would-be serious exposé of elder abuse is so mishandled it merely becomes an endless, clumsy and finally patronizing litany of woe, offering no real insights or solutions.

Film Journal International

Economic predators are taking advantage of senior citizens who've lost their capacity to responsibly handle their financial affairs. The specific scenario may differ, but the scams are similar, following specific patterns. This film calls them out.

The doc is so obnoxiously simplistic that you find yourself strangely unsympathetic to its objectively inarguable aim to promote greater standards of elder care.
