The summer's gayest comedy of manners

With a cast that includes Patricia Clarkson, Judith Light, Zachary Booth (Keep the Lights On), Joseph Cross (Running with Scissors), and Glee sweetheart Jayma Mays, Last Weekendis quite possibly the gayest comedy of manners this side of La Cage aux Folles.

"I think when you're drawn to like-minded people, they're also drawn to you," says its codirector and writer, Tom Dolby, who served as a "loose" inspiration for Booth's character, Theo Green, a gay Manhattanite about to outgrow his unwittingly hypocritical mom, Celia (Clarkson).

Unfolding at the wealthy Green family's Lake Tahoe estate (where Monty Clift and Liz Taylor shot A Place in the Sun), the film is a cure for your average rich-white-people dramedy expressly because it skewers the first-world concerns of the uber-privileged. Last Weekend doesn't skimp on pathos, but its cheeky, satirical peak comes when Celia's maid reminds her that a dinner she prepped was designed by counting carbon emission points, not calories.

Last Weekend is in theaters Aug. 29. Watch the trailer below:
