Suddenly, 'Last Weekend'

I remember when I started blogging one of the first people I met through it was Tom Dolby. At the time, he was a very young man who had recently released his first novel, "The Trouble Boy," and we were exchanging ideas on "making it" in the big city. Cut to nearly a decade later and Tom has written/edited a half-dozen books -- including a successful YA series -- and has recently added screenwriter and director to his impressive resume. His first film, "Last Weekend," opens in New York City today at IFC and sounds right up my alley:

When an affluent matriarch (Patricia Clarkson) gathers her dysfunctional family for a holiday at their Northern California lake house, her carefully constructed weekend begins to come apart at the seams, leading her to question her own role in the family.
Various Q&A sessions with the principals are lined up. To purchase tickets, click HERE. To watch the film on demand at home, click HERE.

Congrats, Tom!
