Synopsis

“The Last September” follows the lives of a privileged family living in County Cork during the fall of 1920. Set on a grand country estate, an aristocratic couple and their friends exist blissfully, while just over the hill, British soldiers attempt to squelch Irish rebels fighting for independence. The snobbish couple’s nineteen-year-old niece lives with them and is also caught between the Irish and the British. She has a British officer falling over himself to prove his love for her, while she pines away for an Irish freedom fighter, despite the fact that he murders men in the name of freedom.
The film examines the attitudes of the Irish upper crust during the beginning stages of Ireland’s rebellion to England’s rule.

Dove Review

The characters in this period drama are well fleshed out, nuanced, giving us interesting people to watch. It is also engaging to witness this way of life that would soon come to an end. Unfortunately, due to the misuse of Christ’s name and the explicit sexual situations, I am unable to recommend it for family viewing.

Content Description
