Last Chance Harvey
Source: Catholic News Service
Delicate romantic comedy about an isolated New York jingle composer (Dustin Hoffman) who travels to London for his estranged daughter's (Liane Balaban) wedding and falls for a lonely airport employee (Emma Thompson). While somewhat predictable, writer-director Joel Hopkins' skillfully wrought valentine to midlife romance—which also features Eileen Atkins as Thompson's mother—draws masterful performances to touching effect and shows the lingering negative consequences of both divorce and abortion as it portrays a mutually generous relationship untainted by irresponsible sexuality. Some sexual references and humor, occasional crude words, the acceptability of divorce and an abortion reference. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III—adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13—parents strongly cautioned; some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
