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

Movie Info

Joanna (Keira Knightley) and Michael Reed (Sam Worthington) are a happily married couple. However, the fate of their marriage rests on how each responds to temptation during a night apart. Michael goes away on a business trip with an attractive colleague named Laura (Eva Mendes), whose outer beauty masks a deep loneliness. Slightly jealous, Joanna encounters a former flame (Guillaume Canet) and agrees to meet him for drinks, but the innocent date may become something more.

Audience Reviews for Last Night

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

    A little slow-moving. Really sad.

    What happens when an unstable relationship is further burdened by the intrusion of external parties? This sets the somber tone and slow pace for the film, and while reviews have been harsh, "Last Night" is held together well by the cast and is a low-key fare that delves into the complexities of what the mind thinks, what the heart feels, and what the self does. Ultimately, sometimes what you do that is clearly the right deed might not turn out to be the best action in leading you to realize what you truly want, the same can be said of doing a wrong act and realizing what is most important to you.

    The film was so so. I was expecting better, considering the trailer is really good. The film reminded me of movies like Unfaithful, Closer, and Eyes Wide Shut. The pacing is a bit off. Some scenes come off a little too slow. The film also feels like a stage play. I was also disappointed with the ending. On a positive all the actors are well cast in the film. Keira Knightley shines in this film. She keeps getting better and better in each film I see her in. I definitely recommend this film only for the performances by the lead actors.
