Martha Pinson & Sonja Greenlee
Imagine Charles Dickens wrote pulp fiction. In ‘The Last Resort,’ based on the novel by Sonja Greenlee, Daytona Beach, Florida, 1976, serves as a mythic underworld of death and loss from which unlikely allies Agnes and Brandy emerge with new lives. Agnes is a beauty from up north whose marriage to a narcissistic rock icon has driven her to run away, hoping to break the shackles of love. Brandy is a topless dancer with a small child on the lam in the swirling, dangerous world of bikers and dealers in town. The women are suspected of squealing when a drug deal goes sour.
