Celia Green (Oscar nominee Patricia Clarkson, Six Feet Under, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) is at a crossroads. She and her husband Malcolm (Chris Mulkey, Captain Phillips, Twin Peaks) have been coming to their resort house at Lake Tahoe for more than 30 years, and yet Celia now feels that something in her life is missing. Gathering her two adult sons (Zachary Booth, Damages, and Joseph Cross, Lincoln) and their partners for a rare weekend together, Celia hopes to come to terms with the past that the house represents and her desire to move forward. Amid an eclectic assortment of guests and drop-ins both young and old, and a catastrophe that upends Celia's meticulously devised weekend, the Green family must learn to strengthen the ties that bind them even if it means letting go of the things they thought were important. A dark comedy of manners, Last Weekend, from the executive producer of Breaking Bad, is about the end of an era for a family - and the steps we must often take in order to create new beginnings.
