The world is ending, we never learn why, but I can't help thinking that Don McKellar saw that episode of the Goodies, where the governments of the world decide to just give up and blow the planet up, and a group of characters see out their last six hours on Earth. Sandra Oh is heading for a rendezvous with her lover. They've made a pact. But things keep her from making the rendezvous and drag her into Don McKellar's life. McKellar is alone and wants to be, because of a bereavement, having escaped spending the time with family, but finds himself drawn into other people's lives, including Callum Keith Rennie who has decided to fulfil his carnal fantasies.
Down to Earth, funny, slightly twisted and off-beat, Last Night is a wonderful film that celebrates life, by juxtaposing it with death. McKellar's mannered performance is perfect, as is pretty much every player's.
