    • Synopsis
    • Last Orders is a road trip with one urn of ashes and four old friends. Jack Dodds (Michael Caine) was a regular guy, so why the strange "last order" to have his ashes thrown off the pier at Margate? Why did his wife (Helen Mirren) refuse to do it? As the Mercedes speeds towards the sea, an emotional mystery unfolds when the men try to understand Jack’s death by reliving their life with him — the War, the children, the affairs, the good times and the bad.
      The journey becomes a pub crawl full of piss-ups and punch-ups as the men discover that through it all, it’s your friends who can break your heart — and your friends who can mend it.
