Lord Archie Balmerino, a crippled war veteran and his long-suffering wife will be there. Edmund Aird, a wealthy entrepreneur, and his beautiful American wife have been invited.

" Whatever you do, keep in mind that someone is watching "
25 November 2009 | by thinker1691See all my reviews

The complex story contained within this movie is universal, in that it involves a group of families living in Scotland and is called " September." The constants are the changing seasons, family, friends, neighbors and the secrets nearly everyone is privy to. Twenty years ago, a beautiful woman named Pandora (Jacqueline Bisset) shared a most notable time at the estates of two wealthy men. The first was Edward Fox who plays Archie, a married, wounded and retired army veteran and Michael York who plays Sir. Edmund a wealthy businessman with world wide interest. Years ago both had a secret affair with Pandora who wanted the security of family, love and marriage. However, when both men revealed their primary interests, she came second. Rebuffed by their explanations, she suffered a car crash and lost her child. Twenty years have passed and Pandora is returning to the family gathering and all concern are wary of her reasons. The story was written by Rosamunde Pilcher who's novel became the tedious three hour movie. Take your eyes from the film and you may lose your interest in this Scotish Payton place. The gorgeous landscapes and beautiful sceneries are simply majestic, but the movie is slow paced and fraught with bad editing and unresolved characters. ****
