Late September Review

Image for Late September

Elderly couple Ken (Vanstone) and Jilly's (Mottram) preparations for Ken's 65th birthday party are run amok by their constant, corrosive bickering.

★★★★★

Ambitious but flawed exercise in improvised naturalism chronicling marital meltdown during a 65th birthday party. The performances and camerawork are patchy, but there are moments of genuine insight and poignancy.

A micro-budget Brit flick with an experimental flavour that generates real insights into married life.
