The family drama Ray Donovan ran on Showtime from 2013 to 2020. After seven seasons, it’s getting a feature film, concluding the storylines of the dysfunctional Donovan family, led by “fixer” Ray Donovan (Liev Schreiber).
By the last time we saw the Donovan clan, Ray had finally learned the truth about the death of his sister Bridget (Emily Rose Richardson) when she was 18 — she didn’t commit suicide because she was on drugs. She committed suicide after being raped by Jim Sullivan (Peter Gerety) and learning she was pregnant. He gave her the money for an abortion, but she couldn’t go through with it and instead died by suicide.
So Ray lured Jim into his office and killed him, leading to a deadly duel between the Donovan and Sullivan families, in which Smitty (Graham Rogers) ended up dead.
According to the press release, “The film picks up where season seven left off, with Mickey (Jon Voight) in the wind and Ray determined to find and stop him before he can wreak any more carnage. It will also weave together today’s episodes of the Donovan/Sullivan feud with the origin story of Ray and Mickey 30 years ago.”
Showrunner David Hollander told Entertainment Weekly in an interview that fans won’t be disappointed with the way the film wraps up the series.
“The film begins with an event and ends with an event. Ideally, we really wanted viewers to be able to come in fresh and experience it,” Hollander said. “We were promoted very hard to finish the story. The fan base is incredible and their response has been tremendous.”
“When Ray Donovan retired after seven amazing seasons, we heard from so many of his loyal fans that they were not ready to say goodbye to Ray and the wonderfully dysfunctional Donovan clan,” added Gary Levine, Co-President of Entertainment at Showtime, added , in a press release. “So we’re excited for them that Liev and David are embarking on an exciting new chapter in this iconic series.”
In its review, Paste magazine said the film was more of a finale than a film, but that’s a good thing.
“Ray Donovan: The Movie is actually less of a movie and more of an extended finale. It also jumps right in and provides a few answers to what happened during and after the events of the Season 7 finale in the form of flashbacks Ray has while burying another body. But from there, the film focuses on the very best that Ray Donovan has to offer, ultimately leading to the emotionally candid ending it was previously robbed of.”
Ray Donovan: The Movie premieres Friday, January 14 at 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time on Showtime.
