Last Night (2010), a beautifully told story and well paced drama / romance about a young, professional married couple who must confront their past and potential future whilst they spend a night apart. All this thanks to an attractive new colleague and a chance encounter with a past/ first love.

Besides the hypnotic musical score and attractive young cast, featuring the wonderfully faced Keira Knightley, Avatar’s Sam Worthington plus Eva Mendes and Guillaume Canet, two things stood out for me in this film.

The first is a reminder to always trust your instincts. The second is the necessity to tread carefully in romantic entanglements – because given the choice, nobody really wants to have someone from their past that they label as ‘the one that got away’.

One more thing. Did I already mention the enchanting musical score?

Happy Last Night 🙂
