  • A melancholy, well-crafted drama set in 1920s Ireland, THE LAST SEPTEMBER is based on the popular novel by Bowen. The setting is the estate of an aging English couple (Gambon and Smith) in County Cork, who welcome into their lives an eclectic cast of characters, including their outgoing niece (Hawes) and scholarly nephew (Slinger). They are joined by a married pair (Wilson and Birkin) who are currently homeless, and another precocious woman (Shaw). As political troubles begin to emerge, the lives of everyone involved are profoundly affected.
