Late September (2012)
Critic Reviews for Late September
Much as one wants to root for indie cinema, this just isn't in the same universe as Mike Leigh or Joanna Hogg.
All the dialogue is improvised, which gives the film a raw, honest feeling of actors digging into their shared creations but inevitably engenders a static, theatrical air.
There is something uncompromising in its pessimism, something that another kind of dramatist or film-maker would have tried to dissolve, or sweeten, or explain away.
If the ending is quietly harrowing, it is only because what goes before, so painstakingly put together, gives power to the coming apart of the key characters' lives and dreams.
