Plot Summary

THE LAST MOUNTAIN is a spellbinding tour along the frontlines of America's most spirited battle over the environment and the economy. Set deep in the heart of Appalachian West Virginia, this consciousness-raising film captures a rowdy band of citizens as they try to stop a giant coal company from blowing up a pristine mountain for its coal. A tale of greed and courage, folly and forward-thinking, THE LAST MOUNTAIN is brimming with the coal hard facts and vivid testimony from the hardscrabble people whose lives are intertwined with coal. Featuring environmental activist and lawyer Robert Kennedy Jr. and the stunning visuals of Appalachia, THE LAST MOUNTAIN is "informative, stirring, and most importantly, inspiring" (Hollywood Reporter). Not only a searing indictment of America's energy policy, this powerful film also points the way to a brighter, greener future.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The black heart of coal country - and, as the film shows, our national energy debate - has never seemed so in need of white knights. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jun 2, 2011

Fresh: The protests and lawsuits organized by lifelong locals are inspiring. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jun 8, 2011

Fresh: A damning look at Big Coal and its landscape-decimating practices, a litany of disheartening statistics and enraging testimony. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Jun 14, 2011

Rotten: [The film] confirms every awful suspicion ever raised about the coal industry. Trouble is, the news is so bad and so plentiful that The Last Mountain may have you looking for the nearest exit instead of a way to register your outrage. – Mark Holcomb, Village Voice, May 31, 2011
