  1. Undeniable asset of an A list cast.
  2. A luminous, piercing film from the Elizabeth Bowen novel, richly evokes a world of privilege on the verge of disintegration.

    Like hard-edged "Masterpiece Theater."
  4. The quality of acting in September, coupled with Idziak's images, warrant a visit.
  5. 70
    This gorgeous expressionist drama makes the comparisons so effectively at the outset that by the end they seem belabored.
  6. There's enough caustic wit, romance and dizzy whimsy to make The Last September, if not deep, at least diverting.
  7. Not even the rich and nuanced performances of stage veterans Smith, Gambon, and Birkin can save this British period drama from languishing amid the story's unfocused longings and unrealistic musings.
