Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley and Eva Mendes in the Last Night trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
LAST NIGHT is about a struggling married couple, played by Sam Worthington and Keira Knightley, who spend one night apart with people they’re attracted to. The whole night they try to decide whether or not to cheat, while struggling with the thoughts about what the other person may or may not be doing. If done properly, this could be a great character study about a married couple and the various environmental factors that play into a relationship. But the problem I have with it is that the filmmaker is trying to insinuate that a living man would actually cheat on Keira Knightley. Granted, he’d be cheating on her with Eva Mendes, but c’mon; this is Keira Knightley. The woman is breathtakingly beautiful.
This film doesn’t seem to have a set release date yet and has already come out in some areas. I’m not sure why given the star power, but maybe the studio doesn’t have the confidence in it. The film was written and directed by Massy Tadjedin. Watch the trailer here.
