In its heyday, the Lorraine Hotel saw its fair share of guests, laughter and good times. But now that the aging inn is well past its prime, owner Lillian Garber must decide whether to repair the Catskills landmark - or sell to developers. As Lillian and her zany staff enjoy what may be the Lorraine's best- and last-summer season, they realize that not even a wrecking ball can demolish life's sweetest treasures. A slice-of-life comedy about old friendships, new romance, and letting go of the past. Written by

During the scene where the kids are all sitting in the bedroom talking, when Molly describes a "boondocker", Bobby sets the end of a "cheese doodle" snack aflame. The second time you see him holding the snack, the amount that has burned has actually decreased, and the flame is smaller. He would have had to pick up and light a second piece, but you see no indication of this. See more »
After watching Memphis Belle, I never thought it was possibly to make a good movie without any sort of major conflict in the plot. That is, until I saw Sweet Lorraine.
There isn't much to this film, Sweet Lorraine. I thought it was going to be something like Cafe Bagdhad, but it wasn't. Maureen Stapelton is Lorraine. She is the owner of Hotel Lorraine, a summer bed and breakfast in the Catskills. But, business isn't what it used to be, so she is considering selling the place to some very persistent, yet tempting buyers who wish to modernize the place. The story, however, does not concern eccentric guests, or anything like that. It is mostly about the staff regulars that work at Hotel Lorraine each summer.
Lots of familiar faces here, such as Edi Falco, Ginacarlo Eposito, and others, with good performances by all, especially the very charming Maureen Stapelton and the actor who played the chef, Sam. If for nothing else, I would really recommend this movie if you've like Maureen Stapelton's other performance.
