'The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey' Official Trailer with Samuel Jackson
"I got a lot of things to do… And I need my memory to do it." Apple TV+ has revealed an official trailer for an upcoming streaming series titled The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey, starring Samuel L. Jackson as "an ailing man forgotten by his family, by his friends, and by even himself." So sad. Suddenly left without his trusted caretaker, Ptolemy Grey is assigned to the care of an orphaned teenager named Robyn. When they learn about a treatment that will restore Ptolemy’s dementia-addled memories, it takes them all on a journey toward shocking truths. The six-episode series will debut will debut this March on Apple TV+. The cast also includes Dominique Fishback, Cynthia Kaye McWilliams, and Damon Gupton. Well this looks quite interesting. Jackson looks better than he has been for years with a deep, complex performance. And I'm glad this film explores the challenges that come with dementia in this way. Definitely worth a look.
