Movie Info

Dan, 30, was paralyzed just over a year ago. Following months of recovery and overwhelmed by life's new realities, he retreated to a family cabin in upstate New York. On the last day of August, his closest friends arrive unannounced to confront him about his recent reclusive and self-destructive behavior. Wanting to support him, yet skeptical of his psychological health, they attempt the tight-rope walk of loving confrontation in the hopes of convincing Dan to return home. Friendships are tested and love reveals itself in this independent drama about breaking down and breaking through. (c) Official Site

Critic Reviews for The Last Day Of August

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

This static, talky effort ultimately doesn't justify its feature-length running time despite some strong performances and the occasional moving moment.

There's enough material here for a half-hour short or a one-act play, but the character and plot reveals simply aren't complicated or surprising enough to justify feature length.

June 24, 2014 | Full Review…

The characters do not escape stereotyping, but the film deserves credit for looking at Shannon's view of the relationship as well as that of the smug urban professionals.

October 3, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A somewhat tedious slow-burn drama with waning tension, but saved by very raw, natural performances. It's quite refreshing to watch a cabin-in-the-woods story with no one getting killed.
