Movie Info

Holocaust survivor Ulah Lippmann hears of a terrorist attack in her Melbourne neighbourhood. She has no idea she'll soon find herself held hostage in her own home by a Muslim radical on the run after the bombing. Fear and hatred turn to sympathy as Ulah takes control, not turning the terrorist in, but nursing him until she discovers his shocking secret.


Critic Reviews for Last Dance

All Critics (5) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (2)

  • A well-meaning two-hander full of hot-button topics and charged with potential, the film is simply too polite and too timid to tackle the big questions it raises about race, religion, hatred and politics.

  • I was moved by it, and I think Julia and Firass are fabulous in it.

  • I didn't believe one word of this terribly well-intentioned plea for understanding between Jews and Palestinians, a construct that quickly collapses under the weight of its own earnestness.

  • Blake has long been an under-utilised national treasure in our acting ranks, and she anchors Last Dance with great presence and assurance.

  • A topical and pertinent film, concisely written, grounded by its profundity and made real and accessible by two superb performances
