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
'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.
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.
It's the sort of movie that thinks cutting between two different stories makes it art. Usually, it feels like an exercise in art. There's a lot of calisthenics but very little beauty or truth or whatever it is the movie is going for.
Will Michael succumb and prove Joanna correct in her suspicions? Will Alex's French accent conquer all? Do you care? I didn't.
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.
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.
