An ADAPTED SCREENPLAY FOR A FEATURE FILM
An unexpected contemporary romance adapted from Picano's classic novel of the same name.
Setting: An east coast beach community as it is closing down for the fall and winter.
Young residents of a beach colony in late September find themselves in a unique, and uniquely difficult love triangle.
Jonathan and Daniel are longtime gay lovers who have everything: great looks, good loving, a house in town, a house on the ocean, successful careers, loving friends, families, even kids (by Dan's first marriage).
But when Daniel flies to England to produce a TV series he leaves Jonathan in the throes of creative crisis with his new composition: a piano concerto commissioned by a major orchestra. And ripe for trouble and also for seduction.
Enter their beach house neighbor, Stevie Locke, twenty years old, and in her own personal crisis, questioning everything including her boyfriend and her future. Circumstances in the nearly empty retreat throw the two lonely young people together and an completely unlikely love affair begins, witnessed by the few remaining residents of the summer place who have their own interest, agendas, and desires concerning the pair.
Can this romance last, and if so, how much destruction will it wreak all around it? Late in the Season is a frank, erotic and romantic love story set in a contemporary summer resort that asks what exactly is the nature of infatuation versus that of commitment; and who does really belong together.
