Last Chance Harvey

"Last Chance Harvey" is one of my new favorite movies. Starring Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, it's a small movie with no action but with huge impact. Maybe you have to be someone like me, who found love later in life -- or maybe you just have to be someone like me who is of a 'certain age' with its inherent wisdom. I loved this story of two ordinary, flawed people finding love in their middle aged years.

Do see it. I suppose it qualifies as "chick flick" but it's not a weepy movie and you will not need kleenex. By turns, the story is gently humorous and touching, and the acting is truly sublime. See it for Emma Thompson's performance, if for no other reason.

PS -- and it's one of those rare films with no nudity or sexual situations. A refreshing change of pace.
