LAST CHANCE HAR­VEY

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

NOON, SCT ★★★

The slen­der premise driv­ing this gen­teel ro­mance does not prom­ise much. Nev­er­the­less, its ac­com­plished leads de­liver more than ex­pected. Emma Thomp­son plays an en­dear­ingly dowdy Miss Lonely Heart. Dustin Hoff­man plays a semi-en­dear­ingly down­trod­den Mis­ter Life­long Loser. They meet. They make eyes. They mud­dle along through a rapid courtship dur­ing a week­end in Lon­don. Hoff­man and Thomp­son are not a ro­man­tic pair­ing that im­me­di­ately comes to mind, but their lively chem­istry will sur­prise and de­light many view­ers. A qui­etly funny movie most of the time, and unashamedly sin­cere all of the time.
