Above is your first official look at Massy Tadjedin’s Last Night which stars Keira Knightly, Eva Mendes, Guillaume Canet and Sam Worthington and will be the closing night film at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
The film centers on Michael and Joanna Reed (Worthington and Knightley), a happily married Manhattan couple, but after attending one of Michael’s business parties Joanna notices a curious moment between him and his co-worker, Laura (Mendes). Nothing specific can be made of the incident, but each are soon tempted to stray, as the Michael goes on a business trip with Laura while Joanna has an encounter with a past love (Canet).
Last Night serves as Tadjedin’s directorial debut working from her own script. Previously she wrote the screenplay for the rather weak sci-fi film The Jacket, which also starred Knightley opposite Adrien Brody and directed by John Maybury. Let’s hope this one has more to offer than that one did, although the story, to me, sounds rather generic.
