  • New York Times journalist Andrew Jacobs directs this documentary about a summer colony of Holocaust survivors. Partially shot by legendary documentarian Albert Maysles, FOUR SEASONS LODGE looks at the last time these people gather together to discuss their past and present, revealing moments of both sadness and humor. The decision to close the community evokes a variety of emotions from its longtime seasonal residents, but their shared history unites them even as they disagree about the lodge's future.
  • Critic Reviews
    "The lyrically complicating hand of Mr. Maysles, who shot the film with several collaborators, is everywhere apparent in the way the camera picks a path around coherence, refusing narrative in favor of the thick detail of life unfolding....Gorgeously photographed..."
    New York Times

    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The tone is sweet and other times tart when there's cause. The drama's real but broken-up by quirkiness."
    Box Office

    "[S]urprisingly upbeat....The pic serenely unfolds at the slow and steady pace of its indomitable subjects, ultimately rewarding viewers' patience as individual personalities and stories emerge..."

    "Though this may sound like a sad story, it is, in fact, a joyous one. These people came out of their experience with an intense desire to enjoy life as much as possible."
    Los Angeles Times
