Superb cast in a stunning film.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Last September [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Deborah Warner's first foray into film is marked with the hallmarks of her celebrated theatre work: quiet intelligence, truth and gentle humour - not to mention a cast of the greatest actors alive: Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon and the unparalleled Fiona Shaw, Warner's long-term theatre collaborator.
This period of Irish history, and this group of aristocratic people, the Anglo Irish, are new to most film-goers, and the story of their lives and the decline of the "old ways" marks this out as a less syrupy, though still sumptuously watchable "Brideshead Revisited".
It really is a feast for every sense and well worth seeking out: a magnificent film in every way.
