Julie Carmen, Sheila Kelley, Fran Kranz, Judith Light, Julio Oscar Mechoso and Mary Kay Place are joining Patricia Clarkson in indie comedy “Last Weekend.”

“Last Weekend” takes place over a four-day summer holiday at a Northern California estate overlooking Lake Tahoe, where their two sons and assorted friends and partners have been invited for a long weekend.
