Movie Info

At the edge of an expansive barren valley, all that remains of The Wallace Farm for Wayward Youth is a few hollowed-out husks of buildings. Seventeen-year-old Kendal (Haley Lu Richardson) can barely recall when the Oregon valley was still lush. It's been a decade since the last rainfall, and society at large has dried up and blown away. Kendal and the few others that remain barely scrape by, while dreaming of escape. When a greedy water baron lays claim to what little of the precious resource remains underground, Kendal must decide whether to run and hide or bravely fight for the few cherished people and things she has left.

Critic Reviews for The Last Survivors (The Well)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

Hammock may have begun his career making worlds for other directors, but given a chance to create his own here, he not only succeeds but excels.

Top Critic

Hammock's carefully composed widescreen shots of the parched landscape contribute to crafting the film's stripped-down, distinctly menacing visual aesthetic and emphasize the isolation of the inhabitants, forced to compete for water and survival.

At times, like its cast of characters, The Last Survivors looks a little rough around the edges, but it certainly achieves more than its glossy compatriots.

FILMINK (Australia)

There's nothing really new on the thematic front here, but production designer-turned-director Tom Hammock does wonders with desert vistas and, along with Richardson, has created a sci-fi heroine as real as the girl next door.

Los Angeles Daily News

It's a film that depends heavily on its central performance. Richardson shines in what was her first major film role, giving Kendal a roundedness rarely seen in either genre.

Eye for Film

An attenuated plot (and some very questionable logic) leaves us with a long and wearying Road populated by people with luxurious hair and far-too-neatly-trimmed beards.
