Last Night 

Directed by Massy Tadjedin (eOne)

Joanna and Michael Reed (Keira Knightley and Sam Worthington) are young, rich, beautiful and married in New York. But don't hate them. They're struggling with the seven-year-itch. Michael goes on a business trip to Philadelphia with colleague Laura (Eva Mendes) while in Manhattan Joanna runs into ex-flame Alex (Guillaume Canet, who is Patrick Dempsey's shaggier, Gaulish doppelganger). Will they or won't they cheat? That's where the suspense lies. Knightley and Canet are in a different class than either Mendes or Worthington, an action star (Avatar, Terminator: Salvation) whose work here misses the subtlety required by the role. Fortunately, we spend much more time in New York. Last Night suffers a little for the imbalance, but these are sexy people, offering a diverting portrait of emotional versus physical transgression. In support, Griffin Dunne's presence brings a welcome touch of Martin Scorcese's lost-in-Manhattan movie After Hours to the piece.
