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

When Leonard first arrives, Molly is present with the other kids to receive him. He asks about Rex, and learns that Rex has been drafted during a visit to Israel. Later, Sam tells Molly that she is doing Rex's old job, and, sarcastically, that Rex "is summering elsewhere". She responds, "I don't blame him", as if Rex is now absent by choice. See more »
One summer in the 1960's, 3 girls from Florida packed a car and went to work in a family resort in the Poconos. For me it was utter culture shock. South Florida, and I don't mean Miami, was so very different. I yet remember the 3 year old twins from New Jersey who asked their dad, "Is this the country?" But so much of this movie was like my summer. The relationship of the college kids to the owners/family. The motley group of kids working at the resort. I happened to have a job as a chambermaid, which had real advantages over being a waitress. We were off work for the day after the rooms were cleaned! Our inn was no way near as large, the entertainment was even more corny, but the the experience, the memories. They are golden. It was a great summer job, a place to meet people from very different backgrounds, to see new places. Thanks for "Sweet Lorraine".
