Boston Globe
A gorgeous autumnal period piece that catches a vanishing proprietary class on the eve of its extinction in Ireland in 1920.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Undeniable asset of an A list cast.
88
One of those rare movies that manages to maintain the hushed intensity and claustrophobic anxiety that is normally associated with theater or prose.
83
Entertainment Weekly
There's something Slavic about Warner's storytelling.
75
San Francisco Chronicle
The quality of acting in September, coupled with Idziak's images, warrant a visit.
75
Christian Science Monitor
The movie doesn't have much more get-up-and-go than the characters, but solid performances and richly textured camera work keep it involving most of the way through.
75
Miami Herald
Sad confusions and emotional disconnections are what the story is all about.
63
Baltimore Sun
Instead of a sweeping epic, this adaptation of a novel by Elizabeth Bowen is much quieter, a work perhaps too understated and stereotypical for its own good.
50
Chicago Sun-Times
I'm not sure the movie should have pumped up the melodrama to get us more interested, but something might have helped.
50
New York Daily News
Saga too arty for own good.
50
New York Post
Overall, The Last September is a real snooze.
