Netflix Reteams with ‘Mudbound’ Filmmaker Dee Rees for ‘The Last Thing He Wanted’ (Exclusive)

Last Thing was a fictional turn for Didion, better known for her award-winning autobiographical work. The story centers on a hardscrabble journalist named Elena McMahon (Hathaway), who inherits her father’s position as a dealmaker — an arms dealmaker. She soon finds herself on dangerous ground as the Iran-Contra Affair’s arms-for-drugs plot reaches its tipping point. – Borys Kit, The Hollywood Reporter
