Title: Last Chance Harvey
Description: Academy award winners Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson reunite in Last Chance Harvey, a heartfelt romance that celebrates new beginnings – at any age.
New Yorker Harvey Shine is on the verge of losing his dead-end job as a jingle writer. Warned by his boss that he has just one more chance to deliver, Harvey goes to London foe a weekend to attend his daughter’s wedding but promises to be back on Monday morning to make an important meeting – or else.
Harvey arrives in London only to learn his daughter has chosen to have her stepfather walk her down the aisle. Trying to hide his devastation, Harvey leaves the wedding before the reception in the hope of getting to the airport on time, but misses the plane anyway. When he calls his boss to explain, Harvey is fired on the spot.
Drowning his sorrows at the airport bar, Harvey strikes up a conversation with Kate, a sensitive 40-something employee of the Office of National Statistics. Kate, whose life is limited to work, the occasional humiliating blind date and endless phone calls from her smothering mother, is touched by Harvey, who finds himself energised by her intelligence and compassion.
The growing connection between the pair inspires both as they unexpectedly transform one another’s lives.
