Brent Simon
Screen International

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.

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...

This is London

The word sexy is horribly overused. When it comes to this pair, though, it's the only word that will do.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

While it's initially hard to care much about characters this privileged, the emotions and situations are ones we can all relate to.

Allan Hunter
Daily Express

A glossy melodrama that turns a gossip column premise into an earnest, well-acted rumination on modern relationships.

Trevor Johnston
Radio Times

All in all, this is a low-key affair, but its strength is in the keen observation of how relationships develop.

Birmingham Post

It's a little slow and not a great deal happens, but it's no real hardship watching beautiful people for 90 minutes.

Sukhdev Sandhu
Daily Telegraph

A good-looking, tightly-scripted and ever-so-slightly superficial drama about a married couple on the brink of infidelity.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

A small-scale, indulgent but worthwhile movie from writer-director Massy Tadjedin about infidelity, jealousy and the quarter-life crisis.

Elliott Noble
Sky Movies

Whether you care about her characters or not (and you won't), Tadjedin does at least keep you guessing as to who will take the moral high ground come the end.

ViewLondon

Engaging, sharply observed relationship drama, enlivened by strong performances from all four leads, though the fact that it constantly feels stagey and contrived is something of a distraction.

Sadly, the weakest link in this provocative tale is Worthington who never really ignites the screen in quite the same way as Knightley.

Tadjedin brings out the best of her strong cast but all the eyeball-melting beautyon display and the highly polished treatment of the story could have done with a touch of authentic grit.

Jam! Movies

Last Night is quiet and it moves slowly. It's also dense with conversation, so it won't appeal to everyone, but it's a worthwhile (albeit depressing) relationship drama.

Tadjedin banks on the power of telling, familiar moments, betting that viewers will recognize the heartache at the center of a fleeting expression or hurried action. For the most part, her gamble pays off.

Armond White
New York Press

It is far beyond the juvenile time-jumping in Blue Valentine or the old-fogey show tunes nostalgia of any random Nora Ephron movie.

Hollywood & Fine

It's nice to see an intelligent film about adult relationships and the ways that jealousy and insecurity can shred what is otherwise a solid connection between two people.
