Filmed entirely on location in East Hampton, Long Island, "Last Summer in the Hamptons" concerns a large theatrical family spending the last weekend of their summer together at the decades-old family retreat which economic circumstances have forced them to put on the market. Victoria Foyt plays a young Hollywood actress whose visit wreaks havoc on the stellar group of family and friends - led by matriarch Viveca Lindfors and made up of an extraordinary mix of prominent New York actors, directors, and playwrights. In the course of a very unusual weekend, comic as well as serious situations arise, and the family's secrets - of which there are many - begin to unravel. Written by
Henry Jaglom's inspiration for this movie came from the summers he spent with his parents in the Hamptons on Long Island, mostly involving his father Simon Jaglom (1896-1992), who died in East Hampton at the end of the very last summer. The film is dedicated to his memory. See more »
I work in the film exhibition industry, for 20 years now, and this is without a doubt one of the worst films I have ever had the misfortune to sit through. The wrestling scene one of the other commentors describes as "a funny turn" I found to so embarassing that I was squirming in my seat while watching it. The improvisation was so bad that I found myself pacing back and forth in the back of the auditorium trying not to walk out of the screening. I have watched 3 hour movies that passed more quickly than this film. Martha Plimptons improv scene where she descibes a late-nite rendevous was particularly BAD!! And the plot device where one character gives another his sweater, which he then wears around his waist for the entire rest of the summer, was so predictible, that I knew right away that something was gonna happen to the recipeint. Bad movie all the way around!!
