The ultimate New York City playboy Jack Frost (Jason Behr) is shattered when he discovers his one true love Carolina (Monet Mazur) is about to marry another man. Still haunted by his mother's suicide, Jack spirals into a self-destructive cycle of whiskey and reckless behavior, while his best friends Ozzy (Krysten Ritter) and Scotch (Mike Landry) try to jar him back to reality. Strangely enough, it's Jack's eleven year-old neighbor, Sophie (India Ennenga), who helps the drowning urbanite shake off the nostalgia and excess that threaten to consume him.

The Last International Playboy is the debut feature film production of Director Steve Clark, who penned the original screenplay with co-writer Thomas Moffett and was inspired by the life of George Plimpton, a friend and colleague of the writers. The film was released shortly after the death of Lucy Gordon - who played Kate in the film - and the film was dedicated in memory of her. Thomas Moffett also wrote the film Shrink starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Williams, which was received to much critical acclaim at the 2009 Sundance festival.
