Sunday I went to see "Last Chance Harvey" for which both Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson are nominated for Golden Globes.
What a charming picture! Hoffman plays a man at the end of a string of bad luck who bumps into Emma Thompson, similarly unlucky in love. The movie is very predictable, but utterly delightful. And Emma Thompson couldn't be more lovely and perfect for the role.
The scenery in and around London doesn't hurt either. But every time "Harvey" took a cab to Heathrow both I and Fabrice (who I went to see the movie with) cringed because it's so expensive. Harvey -- you gotta take the Heathrow Express.
