Here is the trailer for Last Night, and to be honest, I’d never heard of this film, which stars Keira Knightley, Eva Mendes, and Sam Worthington. It comes from first-time director Massy Tadjedin, who wrote the script for The Jacket. The story follows a married couple, apart for a night while the husband takes a business trip with a colleague to whom he’s attracted. While he’s resisting temptation, his wife encounters her past love. And as much as I love adultery tales, I’m not sure that Sam Worthington — Charming Potota’s Cousin — will be able to extract the appropriate amount of anguish out of the denouement. Maybe he’ll surprise me. Or maybe Delightful Root Vegetable’s inability to act will suggest that, instead of feeling burned by the betrayal, he’ll feel cheated because he passed up an opportunity (presumably) to sleep with Eva Mendes.
I think the real lesson here is: Never leave your wife with a charming French man. Rookie mistake.
