LATE SEPTEMBER

Late September takes place over a 24-hour period, in a beautiful Kent house and garden, and follows the course and aftermath of a birthday celebration organised by a middle-aged woman for her husband to whom she has been married for nearly 40 years. As the day and night progress, old rifts, new relationships and secrets emerge amongst friends, and the underlying tensions in the marriage can no longer be contained.

This age group, the post war generation now approaching old age, has not received so much attention in film and the problems these friends face are specific but universal and recognisable to us all.

The whole thing has the glow and patina of a classic.

Jon Sander's spellbinding

Late September, the best type of magic here, the kind that comes from a seemingly empty hat.

Derek Malcolm, Evening Standard

Not without humour, full of irony and with a real feeling for disjointed lives...
