Last Night: movie review
Keira Knightley and Sam Worthington play husband and wife in 'Last Night,' as they both face the temptation of infidelity.
In “Last Night,” Keira Knightley and Sam Worthington play a Manhattan married couple, Joanna and Michael, who seem to be experiencing their seven-year itch a bit early. Jealous Joanna picks a fight with Michael over the attractive new business colleague he’s been keeping mum about. Since the colleague, Laura, is played by Eva Mendes, Joanna has a point.
When Michael and Laura go to Philadelphia for an overnight business meeting, who should suddenly appear in Manhattan but Joanna’s old French flame Alex (Guillaume Canet)? Writer-director Massy Tadjedin cuts back and forth between these twin temptations. Will Michael succumb and prove Joanna correct in her suspicions? Will Alex’s French accent conquer all? Do you care? I didn’t. Grade: C- (Rated R for some language.)
