The Last Face

Critics Consensus

The Last Face's noble intentions are nowhere near enough to carry a fundamentally misguided story that arguably demeans the demographic it wants to defend.

Movie Info

The Last Face centers around a love affair between Dr. Wren Petersen (Academy Award (R) winner, Charlize Theron), the director of an international aid organization and Dr. Miguel Leon (Academy Award (R) winner, Javier Bardem), a relief-aid doctor. Set against the devastating backdrop of war-torn Liberia, Miguel and Wren must find a way to keep their relationship alive in extraordinarily difficult conditions battling their mutual passion for the value of life matched by the intensity of their diametrically opposed opinions on how best to solve the conflict that surrounds them. Directed by Two-time Academy Award (R) winner Sean Penn, The Last Face also stars Primetime Emmy (R) nominee Jared Harris, and celebrated French actors Jean Reno and Adèle Exarchopoulos.

Audience Reviews for The Last Face

The jumps in time prevent us from getting closer to its characters, and it is easy to understand why so many people hated this film when we see a cheesy love story between a white couple made more important than what there is to say about the horrors that happen in Africa.
