The Last September Screening At The BFI Southbank This Afternoon



The 1999 film The Last September is screen at the BFI Southbank at 4.30pm this afternoon as part of a two-month long Maggie Smith season.

The versatile actress Dame Maggie Smith has starred in films ranging from Shakespeare to comedy, from period drama to fantasy feature, from romance to American classic, so it's only natural that the BFI should want to celebrate her work with a selection of her most loved productions. 

The Last September stars David Tennant alongside Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Keeley Hawes, Richard Roxburgh, Gary Lydon and Jane Birkin. Adapted from the novel by Irish writer Elizabeth Bowen, the film is set in the 1920s on an estate near Cork during the Irish War of Independence. Michael Gambon and Maggie Smith play Sir Richard and Lady Myra Naylor, who preside over the great house and their guests while Irish republicanism rises around them. David Tennant plays a young English army captain, Gerald Colthurst, who falls in love with the Naylors' niece Lois (Keeley Hawes),who herself is attracted to the republican fighter and wanted killer Peter Connolly (Gary Lydon).

A second screening of The Last September takes place on 18th January at 8.30pm.
