All Critics (42) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (14) | DVD (3)

Expends so much effort looking good and creating a dreamy atmosphere that its makers seem not to care about maintaining narrative coherence or building emotional resonance.

One Guy's Opinion

Slow, stately, and boring.

Absolutely dreadful -- boring, boring, boring.

San Francisco Examiner

An entrancing film about yearning.

Spirituality and Practice

Anyone seeking a low-key blend of the personal and the political need search no further than this gently photographed fable.

Christian Science Monitor

Beautifully filmed, "Last September" has the feeling of an impressionistic painting.

Hollywood Report Card

Although intelligent, fails to truly grip the viewer.

[font=Century Gothic]"The Last September" takes place in 1920 in Ireland, where Lois(Keeley Hawes) is coming of age as a member of the ruling Anglo-Irish ruling class while Ireland is gaining its independence. This is not good news as far as her family is concerned, considering they will probably have to soon vacate the premises but they are acting as if nothing is the matter. In fact, they invite their free-spirited relation, Marda(Fiona Shaw), for the weekend.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic][/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"The Last September" has little plot and concerns itself more with place and time setting the mood but the movie is too similar to "Rules of the Game" and "May Fools" for it to be successful. It wastes a very good cast which includes Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon and Jane Birkin.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic][/font]
[font=Century Gothic]At the heart of the movie are issues of identity and class. The ruling class identifies themselves as Irish even though the native population disagrees and thinks of them as English.[/font]

Just moody and a bit messy. It could have been interesting and some of the actors made it worth checking out but it was pretty badly executed.
