"But men are men; the best sometimes forget." - William Shakespeare, Othello
Emotional and thought-provoking reflection on marriage, love, sex, faithfulness, Last Night is the latest film I saw on satellite TV, which made me wish I had someone near me to discuss it with. I had nobody instead , but here I am now, blogging with the intent to share.
The story follows a married couple, Joanna (Keira Knightley) and Michael (Sam Worthington), apart for a night while the husband takes a business trip with a colleague, Laura (Eva Mendes), to whom he is attracted. While he tries to resist temptation, his wife encounters her past love, Alex (Guillaume Canet) , a French writer she had a brief intense affair with in France and whose memory she has always kept in her heart idealizing him. Joanna and Michael have been married three years, though they have known each other for many years and have been together since college.
