Description: After the American playwright and actor Sam Shepard had played the role of the ghost in Michael Almereyda's "Hamlet," Shepard invited the filmmaker to document rehearsals for his "The Late Henry Moss," that he staged with Nick Nolte and Sean Penn in leading roles. Almereyda and his crew filmed the last three weeks before the premi鑢e. The film combines interviews with Shepard, his actors and staff with images of the rehearsals. The result is both a portrait and a unique glimpse of top actors seeking their way through the material. The film also offers a survey of the career of Shepard, including a report of his stormy relationship with his father, who died in 1984.
