THE LAST OF THE WINTHROPS explores the powerful revelations of a woman who reclaims her sense of self after taking an Ancestry DNA test. At age 49, Viviane Winthrop, must confront the seismic truth that her dad, Reginald Winthrop, who could literally trace his heritage to the founders of America, was not her biological father. When Reg and his beautiful French Canadian wife Claire have their “miracle child,” Viviane is raised as an heir to the historic Winthrop exceptionalism. Moving fluidly between past and present through archival footage, private letters and recordings, the film follows Viviane on an epic journey across five countries and hundreds of years to embrace her new identity, resolving powerful themes about the relationship between bloodlines, love, belonging and family.
