Last Flag Flying – due for release November 3 – stars Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, and Laurence Fishburne.

The three reunite when one's son is killed in combat, and he asks the others to accompany him to the funeral.

Mowder has many film and commercial credits including Foxcatcher with Steve Carrell and Channing Tatum, and Smart People with Dennis Quaid, Thomas Haden Church, and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Mowder is a member of the Curtain Players artistic advisory and season selection committees. She presently is serving as artistic advisor for Crimes of the Heart, opening at the Harlem Road playhouse on December 1.
