Ever run into an old lover and wondered about all the "what ifs"? What if we'd been older (or younger), more mature, wiser or (you fill in the blanks). Let's face it - sometimes that smoldering flame from a past love is ready and waiting for the right moment to be rekindled. But can it? That is the focus of the movie,Last Night, and it remains very watchable without falling into totally smarmy territory. Credit has to go to the entire cast, particularly Keira Knightley, playing a wife who runs into her old lover. If this seems like the same tired plot you've seen in other movies, rest assured that the characters in this one are working with a script that gives them room to add depth to their parts.
As far as sex goes, there are some steamy scenes but nothing as graphic as what I'd anticipated. There is actually more sexual tension because of this. What I found particularly fascinating about this film: the way time, distance, and marriage can add or subtract from the longing for an old love....for better or worse. Take a chance on Last Night and you aren't likely to regret it.
