Set in London, this romantic comedy stars Dustin Hoffman as Harvey Shine, a divorced and haggard jingle-writer quickly aging out of his career and workaholic ways. With a warning from his boss (Richard Schiff) to not bother rushing back, Harvey goes to London, begrudgingly, for his daughter's wedding, fielding that work calls the whole time he's there. When Harvey greets his estranged daughter, Susie (Liane Balaban), it becomes clear just how far away he's grown from his family. The film never spells out in exactly what ways Harvey was a bad father, but it is clear he missed the boat when Susie asks her stepfather (James Brolin) to give her away. As Harvey leaves his heartbreak at the ceremony for an emergency work call, he misses his flight and gets fired. While nursing a whiskey at the airport bar, Harvey bumps into Kate (Emma Thompson), an airport employee escaping her own bad day with a glass of wine and a book. Suddenly taken by Kate's British charm, a tipsy Harvey bombards her with tales of his trouble. This unlikely trading of sob stories leads to lunch, a walk around London, and a day of unexpected romance. Thompson is charming as Kate, a lonely middle-age woman struggling to deal with her mother's constant prying into her life. Despite not having had the best of luck in romance, Kate is an optimist at heart, and it's this spark for life that attracts Harvey and ultimately helps repair his image in his daughter's eyes. Never showy or too ambitious, Joel Hopkins's slow-paced romance twists old cliches to suit a more adult audience. While not groundbreaking in its plot, LAST CHANCE HARVEY is saved by great performances from the always-solid Hoffman and the incredibly charming Thompson, who makes an otherwise familiar story feel fresh.

  • Last Chance Harvey

    This was a great movie!!!! I felt I knew this man and what he was feeling about attending his daughter's wedding after being divorced from his wife. He was put down in her eyes and none of his accomplishments had any value in his ex-wife's world. He meets a woman by chance, they discover their lives are better for the encounter. There is a deep awareness of the other person and a friendship develops between them. I could experience the love growing between them throughout the movie and was rooting them on to discover each other. I thoroughly enjoyed these characters and if gave me hope that it is never too late for romance at any age.

  • Great Movie

    This movie is great, it is a beautiful story of a man who is down on his luck in just about every area of his life. He tries to connect with his grown daughter at her wedding and things just don't work out as planned. When he is as low as he can go he meets a very special person, the movie is the delightful story of the courtship and love. The movie is realistic and makes you feel as if you can connect with the actors, real life challenges and issues. Highly recommend this movie, it is a good one, you will enjoy it.

  • I Couldn't Look Away!

    I first saw this movie on its opening night in a packed house at the Denver Starz Film Festival. I had no idea what it was about, but the star quality of Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson assured me that I would not be disappointed. And I wasn't. Hoffman's Harvey is painful to watch at times, as he makes one blunder after another, distancing him further from his estranged daughter at her wedding. But he's charming too, especially when he finally has a conversation with Thompson's character in an airport bar. Its hard to take your eyes off the unlikely chemistry between these two fine actors.

  • great movie

    I enjoyed this realistic story of two people meeting and changing each others lives and has a happy ending too boot! They are real people who face real everyday challenges of family relationships and in the midst of it all, accidently find each other and change their lives together.
