This is a rare gem in which none of the actors seem to be acting; it's relaxed & real, as are life's complications & the ultimate simplification of two mature lives. Great vehicle for the ensemble.

A thoroughly enjoyable film.

One of the fresher romances, Last Chance Harvey is a winner from start to finish. Harvey Shine, divorced and about to attend the wedding of his daughter, lands in London feeling like a fish out of water, especially when he finds the step-dad is going to give the bride away. Things go from bad to worse: his pale linen suit looks creased and out of place among the dark, conservative ones at the pre-nuptial dinner ("You said white" he says to his ex-wife, a little embarrassed.) Just to turn the knife, there is still the 'klonky' security block attached to one sleeve, and he finds that he is very much out of the picture to do with the wedding honours. Meeting Kate Walker, 40-ish and the proverbial wallflower, he begins to relax, relishing her outspokenness and her sheer niceness. They attend the reception together and prevail, finishing the evening by falling in love. What makes this story delightful is the charisma of the two stars. Hoffman's gaze of admiration and attraction towards Kate is wonderful in its intensity and sexiness, and Emma Thompson (ever fresh and winning) slowly realises there is the chance of real love. It's a must for those who love romance and wry humour.
