  • Mick LaSalle

    Aside from Patricia Clarkson, who is practically this movie's reason for being, the great virtue of Last Weekend is that it's exactly as it presents itself.

  • Serena Donadoni

    Last Weekend is too enamored of this nouveau riche household to be satirical, instead offering unexpected moments of genuine warmth as a calling card for goodness.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Rooney

    Restrained and elegant to a fault, this first feature from co-directors Tom Dolby and Tom Williams is too muted in its catharsis and too overcrowded with superfluous characters to be fully satisfying, but the delicate central performance keeps it watchable.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    Its eventual reach for warm-and-fuzzy emotional catharsis rings hollow among characters that never become more than disagreeably shallow products of unexamined privilege.

    Variety Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    The characters flutter about, argue and flirt, but they are simply too bland and vacuous to make much of an impression. It doesn't help that half of them serve no purpose other than to fill the camera frame.

  • Betsy Sharkey

    All the possibilities of a richly drawn family squabble fade faster than the final days of summer.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Andy Webster

    Mostly, Last Weekend is an elegiac ode to affluence.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Sheila O’Malley

    Clarkson has great emotional authority onscreen, but even she can’t save Last Weekend. It’s beautifully filmed, with a great feel for location and atmosphere, but it feels petty. The vacation home is huge, but the emotions are exceedingly small.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Peter Sobczynski

    As a result, anyone who does bother to show up will find themselves bearing witness to unpleasant people doing and saying unpleasant things to each other while hoping in vain that the two guys from "Funny Games" will show up hoping to borrow a couple of eggs.

  • Drew Hunt

    The filmmakers are content to idealize everyone's unchecked narcissism and idle privilege--an inquiry-free recipe for disaster in an age when the American wealth gap is wider and more detrimental than ever.
