Plot Summary

New Yorker Harvey Shine (Academy-Award®-winner Dustin Hoffman) is on the verge of losing his dead-end job as a jingle writer. Warned by his boss (Richard Schiff) that he has just one more chance to deliver, Harvey goes to London for a weekend wedding for his daughter but promises to be back on Monday. When he misses the plane and is fired on the spot, Harvey strikes up a conversation with Kate (Academy-Award®-winner Emma Thompson), a slightly prickly, 40-something employee of the Office of National Statistics. Thus, through the devastation of Harvey’s life, a new romance is born.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Sure, it's predictable at times, and maybe even a little sappy, but overall it's a sweet movie about genuine human emotion. – Ben Lyons, At the Movies, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: These two actors are so strong that in the end we are left with a sweet and a tender movie. – Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: All this gloomy masochism is made palatable because of the performers. And yet we must ask: Is this any way to show off two of our finest actors? – Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Thanks to the grace and skill of Thompson and Hoffman, Last Chance Harvey manages to rise above its plot and deliver quite a bit of pleasure. – Julie Rigg, MovieTime, ABC Radio National, Jun 24, 2010
