What if everything you believed about yourself was a lie? The Last Of The Winthrops explores the secrets of a woman who struggles to reclaim her sense of self after a life-altering revelation. Viviane Winthrop must confront the seismic truth that her father, Reginald Winthrop, who could trace his heritage to the founders of America, is not her biological father. When he and his beautiful French Canadian wife Claire have their “miracle child”, Viviane is raised as an heir to the historic Winthrop exceptionalism and finds pride in her career in dentistry until a genetic test collapses years of lies and denial. Through archival footage and private letters and recordings, we journey through the secrets that Viviane’s mother planned to take to her grave. Moving fluidly between past and present, the film follows Viviane on an epic journey across five countries and hundreds of years to find out who she thought she was… and now knows she truly is. Struggling with her new dual identity, Viviane attempts to find peace while wrestling with powerful themes about love, blood, and family. Not Rated | 84mins
