Last Night (2011)



Critic Consensus: Last Night doesn't opt for easy answers, but the framework and characters overall are too slight and plain to be compelling.

Critic Reviews for Last Night

All Critics (63) | Top Critics (17)

'Last Night' is an empty exercise in sheer self-regard, a tedious, lifeless trawl through the secret lives of the rich and beautiful.

Forget about sex or adultery -- there isn't enough life in Last Night.

The actors try their best to transcend the flimsy script and unappealing direction, but ultimately the movie offers a mostly hollow experience that delivers a night that you will struggle to remember.

Digital Spy

A well-acted, intellectually ambitious and emotionally honest roundelay of enticement. The film stands out as a rare example of a work more interested in evoking universal thoughtfulness than telling its audience what to think.

Screen International

Last Night develops into a provocative (if slightly anti-climactic) tryst.

The film is as shiny and thin as a coat of nail varnish, but beguilingly photographed...

Audience Reviews for Last Night


An honest though unimpressive movie with decent performances, especially Keira Knightley, who shines in this story about doubt, desire and betrayal. Still, it is too bad that after ninety minutes of slow building up it simply does not offer a real pay-off.

Super Reviewer

Will be too slow for some, but I liked this movie. I think any one in a marriage who ever wondered what if? will relate to this. Definitely not a feel good, but well acted and thought provoking.

A rare movie in which the middle section is the most compelling part. Unsurprisingly, this makes for a ho-hum experience all together.
