Movie Review ~ Last Chance Harvey

I went to special screening of Last Chance Harvey with a Q&A with Dustin Hoffman. The movie was sweet and romantic, we need more films like this. Who says older people can't fall in love? The most touching scene was when Harvey, Dustin Hoffman, gives the toast at his daughter's wedding reception. Dustin said when they shot the scene, he asked the director, Joel Hopkins, to shoot it with three cameras because he didn't think he would be able to do the scene more than once. Emma Thompson is a great match for him, so there's no question why they were both nominated for Golden Globes.

Dustin Hoffman was humble and very interesting to listen to. He spoke not only about the movie, but from everything from Kramer VS Kramer to Rainman. He talked and answered questions for so long, we got kicked out of the theater because there was another screening and we didn't get a chance to get autographs or pictures.
