Kiera Knightly at her best. Very thoughtful movie. Eva Mendes was really good as the flirtatious temptress playing the victim. I thought this film is a really good study on temptation in any relationship and the subtle emotions and not so subtle as well.

It's a national sport to dismiss Keira Knightley as a talentless pretty face (particularly in the UK.) Her acting range is limited but in the right role she is way better than her critics care to admit. The girl is a true 'movie star' - the camera just LOVES that face - and in 'Last Night' we movie star Keira and Keira the actress at their best.

'Last Night' is a slight tale of a seemingly happy 20-something married couple tempted by infidelity over the course of a single night. He (Sam Worthington) by work colleague Laura (Eva Mendes) and she (Keira Knightley) by old flame Alex(gorgeous Guillaume Canet). It's a modern, very `cool' and sober take on the eternal themes of lust, lost love, fulfilment, loyalty, trust and choices. Both are pursued and both are tempted but who will give in?

Perhaps in the current climate of global economic crisis, war and revolutions the angst of fairly well-heeled and `beautiful' people may seem a tad too trivial for some. This might explain the film's poor performance in the USA. The film doesn't trivialise though - that's the point. Neither does it moralise. Unexpectedly (for me anyway) it makes you think. In addition it looks gorgeous and captures the essence of a particular kind of city living perfectly. All the acting, from a credible international cast (no fake US accents here) is believable. Mind you, the on-screen chemistry between Keira Knightley and Guillaume Canet is so "hot" that you are left wondering why on earth she ended up with the dull guy. In this context the casting of Sam Worthington is perhaps a weakness in an otherwise interesting film.

I didn't have any expectations for this film, so I wasn't particularly disappointed by it, neither was I overly impressed either.

This is basically the story of a married couple who are tempted to stray from their marital vows, and end up
seeking pleasure in the company of others. We see the happily married couple in their lovely apartment looking relaxed and content and it is not until the husband announces he is going on a trip out of town, that we are introduced to their alternative partners.

For me I just didn't feel I had a reason to care what the main protagonists did, the pace was too slow and I didn't feel very sympathetic to either of the central characters. I liked Guillaume Canet as the possible boyfriend for Keira Knightley's character. He seemed to be only person I could really feel any thing for, as although visibly moved by his encounter, he acted in a gentlemanly way, and was definitely a more likeable partner for the Keira Knightley character.

Overall, I just couldn't invest emotionally in the storyline, and felt like I wish it had been a bit more complicated by adding some subplots maybe. I have to say everyone looked very good, and it was beautifully filmed. The actors looked every inch the movie stars they are,, but ultimately the style did not compensate for the lack of content here.

My review posted online after watching it at the cinema:

This film is beautiful. Set in America, but with an international cast, Last Night provides a gripping insight into the relationship of a married couple who even at the end of the film, don't really seem to have any major problems with their relationship, yet both end up cheating on the other, to varying extents.

Not only is the cinematography beautiful, but so is the cast, the script and the performance. Subtle movements of the body, the slight quiver of the lip, the deep, held breaths; it was a pure, heart-breaking joy.

I must confess, the reason I chose this film over the other was for Keira Knightley. She is a guilty pleasure of mine and I think that this film is an example of some of her best acting. Her voicing was brilliant; not the usual well bred English accent, but something much more vulnerable. Sam Worthington, who I admit I had to look up, was splendid- a far cry from `Avatar'. He playedKnightley's Australian husband who is away on business for most of the film; a wonderful stereotype played rather freshly. Eva Mendes did a great job, though despite the scene where her character is softened in the pool, I did feel she was, well, a bitch. Most of my praise must go to Guillaume Canet, who playedKnightly's old French flame. His acting was superb; gentle, soft touches, the right amount of passion: the way he held his emotions were award winning. It was surprising for me to discover how the same basic acts can conjure different emotions within, with Canet's role generating sympathy to balance Mendes'sdislike.

This film whilst not a complete tear-jerker, did give me the ol' wet-eye. Heart-breaking yet somehow satisfying, right until the abrupt end.

In this brilliant indie film set in New York the charcters played by Kiera Knightley,Sam Worthington, Eva Mendes and Guillaume Canet explore the concepts of love, temptation, infidelity and marriage. It's an incredibly authentic and at times painful examination of the issues and the actors are brilliant. I would highly recommend this film to anyone.
