Trailer for Last Chance Harvey

Movie Preview: Last Chance Harvey

It can be a little obnoxious when the few movies featuring middle-aged folks finding love are melodramatic and poorly done, a la Nights and Rodanthe, which came complete with horses galloping on the beach. I am thankful when Hollywood pays attention to this age group at all, but I feel like there's room for improvement.

So it's a wonderfully pleasant surprise to see a romantic movie starring Emma Thompson and Dustin Hoffman that looks sweet, plausible, and quirky.

Last Chance Harvey takes place in London, where Harvey (Hoffman) has traveled to attend his daughter's wedding. Even though a wedding ought to be cause for celebration, Harvey's world seems to be unraveling around him and he meets Kate (Thompson) just as he's hit bottom (in a bar, naturally). The story looks sweet and hopeful with both of these tremendous actors sparking a nice chemistry together.

The film opens in limited release on Dec. 26. To check out the trailer and let me know what you think,

well i'm a sucker for movies with these types of actors and these types of plot lines, so i'm actually looking forward to it. the sad thing is that since it's not a crazy looking blockbuster, you know that it's not going to get the notice that it should.
