In this dark comedy of manners, the action of LAST WEEKEND unfolds over the course of a long Labor Day weekend at the end of the summer at Lake Tahoe, California. Celia Green (Patricia Clarkson) is at a crossroads. She and her husband, Malcolm (Chris Mulkey), are the founders of a fitness empire and among San Francisco’s wealthiest citizens. They have been coming to Lake Tahoe for more than thirty years, and yet Celia now feels that something in her life is missing. She gathers her two adult sons (Zachary Booth and Joseph Cross) and their partners for a rare weekend together. As the holiday begins, Celia finds herself torn between the house—and the past that it represents—and her desire to move forward with her life. As the weekend progresses and tensions rise, the four members of the Green family are joined by an eclectic assortment of houseguests and drop-ins, young and old. On Saturday morning, an accident threatens to unhinge Celia’s meticulously devised weekend: the Greens’ longtime caretaker, Hector Castillo (Julio Oscar Mechoso), is electrocuted as he is fixing a broken light on the dock. When he is airlifted to a nearby hospital, the Green family goes along with him, and the guests on the property are forced to fend for themselves. Amidst this catastrophe, Celia must decide whether she is ready to let go of the house. LAST WEEKEND is a film about the end of an era for a family—and the steps we must often take in order to create new beginnings.
