Hot Sheet: Young, Cute, Dead

Our top 10 entertainment and events highlights this week include the youth noir, Jamie Marks Is Dead, Patricia Clarkson in Last Weekend, and Lady Gaga with Tony Bennett.



1. FILM: Last Weekend
Directed by Tom Dolby, Last Weekend features Patricia Clarkson as a well-to-do matriarch who arranges a family reunion at her lake house in Northern California. The family is dysfunctional, to say the least, and the meeting causes a few ripples in the deceptively tranquil pond. Her 30-something sons, including a gay screenwriter played by Zachary Booth, both bring their significant others, and there are a few other house guests who bear witness to and at times participate in this wine-fueled comedy of manners. Judith Light also makes an appearance as a nosy neighbor. Meet the director and cast members at a special Q&A moderated by filmmaker Ira Sachs, set to take place tonight before the opening night screening at the IFC Center in New York. Buy tickets here, and watch the trailer below. — Daniel Reynolds
