Last Chance Harvey
This movie stars Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson as two people who encounter each other in London while Kate (Thompson) asks Harvey (Hoffman) to answer a questionnaire at an airport that she works at. He ignores her because he has a habit of being selfish. He attends his daughter's rehearsal dinner but didn't quite receive a warm welcome, as he didn't play an active role in raising her. Kate and Harvey meet again when he needs an immediate flight back to New York because of his job writing jingles. He misses his flight and sees her reading a book in the airport bar during her break. They are each other's second half, but both get skeptical at times, as they face certain obstacles that they need to overcome. This is a great movie with a very heartfelt storyline and great acting. It will teach you about love and last chances. 3 out of 4 stars.
