Consensus: Last Night doesn't opt for easy answers, but the framework and characters overall are too slight and plain to be compelling.

Time Out

'Last Night' is an empty exercise in sheer self-regard, a tedious, lifeless trawl through the secret lives of the rich and beautiful.

Boston Globe

It's the sort of movie that thinks cutting between two different stories makes it art. Usually, it feels like an exercise in art. There's a lot of calisthenics but very little beauty or truth or whatever it is the movie is going for.

The actors try their best to transcend the flimsy script and unappealing direction, but ultimately the movie offers a mostly hollow experience that delivers a night that you will struggle to remember.

Forget about sex or adultery -- there isn't enough life in Last Night.

Will Michael succumb and prove Joanna correct in her suspicions? Will Alex's French accent conquer all? Do you care? I didn't.

Screen International

A well-acted, intellectually ambitious and emotionally honest roundelay of enticement. The film stands out as a rare example of a work more interested in evoking universal thoughtfulness than telling its audience what to think.

Washington Post

Tadjedin banks on the power of telling, familiar moments, betting that viewers will recognize the heartache at the center of a fleeting expression or hurried action. For the most part, her gamble pays off.

Massy Tadjedin's intimate directorial debut takes a spare, thoughtful approach to relationships.

Last Night develops into a provocative (if slightly anti-climactic) tryst.

An honest though unimpressive movie with decent performances, especially Keira Knightley, who shines in this story about doubt, desire and betrayal. Still, it… More

Will be too slow for some, but I liked this movie. I think any one in a marriage who ever wondered what if? will relate to this. Definitely not a feel good, but… More

Women cheat emotionally, men cheat physically.... This movie was very frustrating, and I spent most of the time just very annoyed at everyone involved. I like… More

A rare movie in which the middle section is the most compelling part. Unsurprisingly, this makes for a ho-hum experience all together.
