The Last Supper is adapted from the Toronto play of the same name by Hillar Liitoja. The same actors perform in the film as in the play. It was shot in real time and set entirely in one room in a Toronto hospice. Ken McDougall died of AIDS complications four days after filming finished.
The Last Supper won the Teddy Award for Best Feature Film at the 1995 Berlin International Film Festival. Time Out called the film "simple but devastating study of the human condition in extremis". Variety called it "an important addition to the growing body of pix about AIDS-related issues" but said that it may be too gruelling for some viewers.
