Oh, infidelity. Apparently it’s tough to stay faithful when Eva Mendes and Guillaume Canet come knocking at your bedroom door. At least if you’re Keira Knightley or Sam Worthington.
Last Night is the directorial debut of The Jacket writer Massy Tadjedin, and if this trailer is any indication it looks like 1) it’s fraught with internal strife and smart hand-wringing, and 2) Sam Worthington is getting a chance to act finally.
This is the perfect teaser. Everything about it looks sharp, and it leaves the question of whether they will or won’t cheat on each other dangled like a chocolate-dipped carrot maddeningly out of reach.
Check it out for yourself:
The title is evocative enough with its double meaning, but it looks like the journey here is going to be just as interesting as the temptation. Is there a chance it’ll be as excruciating as Closer? Maybe, but the structure is different enough here to be a pain of a different kind.
