The Last September 1999
A timeless, psychological yet sensual drama, the story depicts the tensions between the longing and the yearning of freedom, between long-standing tradition and radical social change. The story follows the end of an era in 1920 England, the demise of British rule in Ireland and, with it, the passing of an Anglo-Irish aristocracy (the wealthy heirs of English immigrants in Ireland, who sound and appear English, although they consider themselves Irish) that had survived for centuries.
Based on a novel by Elizabeth Bowen, the story takes place at the estate of Sir Richard (Gambon) and Lady Myra Naylor (Smith), who play host to an assortment of guests and visitors on summer holiday. Their niece Lois (Hawes), who has lived with them since childhood and has now become a young woman, assumes the center of the story as she flits from suitor to suitor, oblivious to the political stirrings around her.
