Tribeca Film is teaming with Miramax to release some of the films that were left in the Miramax library when Disney closed the label a while back; one of them is Last Night, in which Keira Knightley and Sam Worthington play a married couple who, when separated for a night, end up confronting temptation. There’s a new trailer for the film, which you can see after the break.
I’ve heard good things about the film, and it is certainly good to see Sam Worthington out of blockbuster mode. And this trailer is well-cut, but there’s something here that doesn’t get me all that interested in the film. Maybe much of the conclusion just seems preordained. Still, if you’re ready for a relationship drama that doesn’t have quite the bite of a film like Closer, this might be the thing.
Apple has the trailer in HD. Last Night opens limited on May 6.

Set in New York City, Last Night is the story of a married couple that while apart for one night, is confronted by temptation that may decide the fate of their marriage. Joanna (Academy Award(R) nominee Keira Knightley) and Michael Reed (Sam Worthington) are 7 years into a successful and happy relationship. They are moving along in their lives together until Joanna meets Laura (Eva Mendes), the stunningly beautiful work colleague whom Michael never mentioned. While Michael is away with Laura on a business trip, Joanna runs into an old but never quite forgotten love, Alex (Guillaume Canet) and agrees to have drinks with him. As the night progresses and temptation increases for the couple, each must confront who they are inside and outside of their relationship. Last Night is ultimately a film about choices – the choice you make to be with someone, to give yourself physically and emotionally, and how to survive all three.
