Set against the devastating backdrop of war-torn Liberia, The Last Face centers on a love affair between Dr. Wren Petersen (Theron), the director of an international aid organization and Dr. Miguel Leon (Bardem), a relief-aid doctor. Together, Wren and Miguel must find a way to keep their relationship alive in the extraordinarily difficult conditions that surround them, while battling their diametrically opposed opinions on how to solve the conflict, and their mutual passion for life.
River Road Entertainment’s Bill Pohlad produced The Last Face alongside, FilmHaven Entertainments’ Matt Palmieri, and Bill Gerber. Jon Kuyper served as executive producer. Bill Bromiley and Ness Saban negotiated the deal on behalf of Saban Films. CAA handled North American rights, with Lionsgate handling foreign rights.
