End of Summer
Running Time: 2 hours.
Oil heiress Leonie Frothingham whiles away a summer at her seaside cottage, where cocktails flow with the tides, and lovers come and go like mosquitoes. Her estranged husband Sam and her just-come-of-age daughter Paula humor Leonies flirtations as matter-of-course for the ultra-wealthy floating above the conventional rules of the world. But while the Great Depression ravages most of the country, even Leonies idyllic retreat is not wholly protected from the quakes of the times. Paula and her idealistic fiancé, the nearly-committed Socialist Will Dexter, cultivate youthful, challenging misgivings about Capitalism and its beneficiaries. More insidiously, Leonies latest flame, the psychoanalyst Kenneth Rice, insinuates himself into each relationship and psyche with a disinterested clinical eye that somehow manages to get him everything and everyone he wants.
