Must Watch: Dustin Hoffman's Last Chance Harvey Trailer
by Alex Billington
October 24, 2008
A delightful trailer for Joel Hopkins' romantic drama Last Chance Harvey has debuted today. Starring Oscar winners Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, the film tells a heartwarming story about a desolate man who finds his romantic spirits lifted by a chance encounter with a woman. This trailer starts out very sad but ends so wonderfully. Call me a softy, but I really loved watching this. Something about it just makes me the smile the whole time. I can't wait to see it during the AFI Fest at its world premiere on November 8th. Until then, I strongly suggest everyone take a quick look at this cheerful little trailer.
"It's never too late to open your heart. It's never too late to change your life. It's never too late to take a chance."

I feel like I practically just watched the movie from that trailer. Am I wrong in thinking they pretty much skimmed over the entire movie?

I think this looks great. I love Dustin Hoffman. Anybody know what the title and artist of the song is in the last half of the trailer?

Well, that trailer totally spoiled the movie. Don't even need to see it now.

He looks really good in that poster. Since, apparently the trailer is spoiler galore, I won't look at it.

It's good to see Dustin as the lead in a movie again. It's been too long

Love Badly Drawn Boy, but does he have some non-compete agreement with all these quirky English Romantic movies?

You guys act like Dustin Hoffman has been gone for a while. He's had a movie out every year for the past several years. "Moonlight Mile" (2002), "Confidence" (2003), "Runaway Jury" (2003), "Finding Neverland" (2004), "I Heart Huckabees" (2004), "Meet the Fockers" (2004), "The Lost City" (2005), "Perfume" (2006), "Stranger than Fiction" (2006), "Mr. Magorium" (2007). Anyway, I'll see this. I'm a sucker for films in London. Although I hated the scene how they met in the bar. The set up and dialogue was completely unbelievable.

This looks good.

I was just reminded why Dustin Hoffman is one of the greatest actors of our time...

To #5: The artist and song are Badly Drawn Boy and The Shining (from The Hour of the Bewilderbeast album). Hope that helps.

Like the actors. Predictable because of the trailer, though, isn't it? I mean, we get the story all in 60 seconds. And is that ever good?

aha I always am amused with the comments of trailers...if it shows a lot of the plot people complain that they have seen the whole film...then if a trailer is very vague and doesnt disclose much people complain saying they wont see a movie that they know nothing about...not saying it is the same people all of the time it just makes me laugh...

That was amusing. Looks good. I think the release date might kill it though with all of the bigger films opening. Seems more like a February, Valentine's day movie.

Wow step father giving her away such BS. WHAT A LIL BITCH

An exceedingly good, natural, logical, well cast and well acted film. Stop propagating the sewer language and I'd call it the best in a long while. If film makers enjoy using filth and offensive language. Keep it in your homes. It's not what some of us want forced in to our lives. Have you not the skill to make good films without it?
