Last Chance Harvey (2008)
Director Joel Hopkins
Academy Award winners Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson reunite in Last Chance Harvey, a heartfelt romance that celebrates new beginnings – at any age. Harvey arrives in London only to learn that his daughter has chosen to have her stepfather walk her down the aisle. Trying to hide his devastation, Harvey leaves the wedding before the reception in hopes of getting to the airort on time, but misses the plane anyway. When he calls his boss to explain, Harvey is fired on the spot. Drowning his sorrows at the airport bar, Harvey strikes up a conversation with Kate, a sensitive, 40-something employee of the Office of National Statistics. Kate, whose life is limited to work, the occasional humiliating blind date and endless phone calls from her smothering Mother, is touched by Harvey, who finds himself energized be her intelligence and compassion.
The growing connection between the pair inspires both as they unexpectedly transform one another’s lives.
