Last Chance Harvey

"Dustin Hoffman stars in this romantic drama as struggling jingle writer Harvey Shine, an aging father who risks losing his job to attend his daughter's London wedding, only to discover that he's not exactly welcome. While seeking refuge in the airport bar, Harvey meets a lonely statistician named Kate (Emma Thompson) and finds himself thrust into an unexpected romance. Both Hoffman and Thompson earned Golden Globe nods for their roles." courtesy of netflix

this movie was a little disappointing in someway, I think I expected more from it. It's a little predictable and even if something you didnt think was going to happen you find yourself saying "of course" it was VERY "movie" it wasnt a real practical story at all and Dustin Hoffman's character is SO sad, its a sad movie because he is such an unfortunate human being. theres a weird ability to relate to him even though most of the stuff you've never gone through. its good acting though, thats for sure.

I wouldn't say "don't see it" but I wouldnt be dying to see it more than once and I wouldn't tell anyone "you have to see it." its not a waste of time...
