Story | Jun 20, 2014 | 8:30 PMThe lifestyles of the rich and petulant require a certain amount of critical distance to be relatable -- or even watchable -- to unaffiliated viewers. There's a bit of that perspective in "Last Weekend," albeit not nearly enough to make this Lake Tahoe-set seriocomedy a more insightful than insufferable portrait of the unsympathetically self-absorbed. Starring Patricia Clarkson as persnickety matriarch presiding over a holiday gathering of bratty offspring and their variably long-suffering partners, the pic reps a smoothly crafted debut feature for co-directors Tom Dolby and Tom Williams. But its eventual reach for warm-and-fuzzy emotional catharsis rings hollow among characters that never become more than disagreeably shallow products of unexamined privilege. Prospects look minor for Sundance Select's planned late-summer theatrical and VOD release.
