The Last September is a film adaption of Elizabeth Bowen's 1929 novel of the same name set during the Irish War of Independence. An aristocratic elderly couple (Michael Gambon and Maggie Smith) host an odd mix of family and friends at their country estate outside the present day Irish city of Cork, and the interactions between their guests drive the emotional plot of the film. Tensions are high and everyone is on edge as strife and warfare dominant Anglo-Irish politics, affecting the lives of all the mansion's inhabitants. The manor's visiting residents include the owner's young niece Lois (Keeley Hawkes), nephew Laurence (Jonathan Slinger), and their longtime friend's The Montgomerys. When Lois' longtime friend Marda Norton (Fiona Shaw) joins the group and freely offers her observations, witticisms, and unwanted advice to all the other guests, anger begins to boil over and emotional confrontations come to the forefront. The Last September is a period piece drama of the infamous "Troubled Times" for Ireland and a number of its personally troubled people.moreless
