Dark new ITV thriller The Last Weekend premiered on ITV1 on Sunday, starring SHAUN EVANS.
This exciting 3-parter is a TV adaptation of Blake Morrison’s novel and tells the story of a small group at a country house over a blisteringly hot bank holiday. Successful barrister Ollie Moreton (Rupert Penry-Jones) invites old college friend Ian Goade (SHAUN), a primary school teacher, to visit him for an August bank holiday at his country home in Suffolk. Ollie and Ian, along with their wives, Daisy and Em, have a shared past and during the course of the weekend, old seething rivalries, accumulated secrets and sexual tensions reach extremely dangerous levels.
The Last Weekend is a gem of a psychological thriller about male jealousy with fantastic performances and a complex and totally engrossing story which keeps you on the edge of your seat.
