The Last Week­end

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - FOOD & DRINK - Nigel An­drew

This sus­pense­ful three-parter, adapted from a novel by Blake Mor­ri­son, gets off to a grip­ping start as two cou­ples get to­gether one hot, sul­try week­end at a rented coun­try house. Since they were univer­sity friends, Ol­lie’s (Ru­pert Penry-Jones, left) and Ian’s (Shaun Evans) paths have di­verged, and they now live very dif­fer­ent lives in dif­fer­ent so­cial classes. How­ever, they re­main locked in a fiercely com­pet­i­tive re­la­tion­ship, coloured by Ian’s past re­la­tion­ship with Ol­lie’s part­ner Daisy (Ir­ish ac­tress Genevieve O’Reilly, right, with Claire Kee­lan as Ian’s part­ner Em, cen­tre). As the story of the week­end un­folds – told to cam­era by Ian – reve­la­tion fol­lows reve­la­tion, and the pic­ture keeps chang­ing. But can we trust Ian? Sun­day, 9pm, UTV.
