Last Chance Harvey, Dustin Hoffman

I watched the movie, Last Chance Harvey few days ago and I loved it. Dustin Hoffman happens to be one of my very favorite actors. I find him so attractive, sexy, and he has always had a special charisma. And he still has all that at 71 years of age. He’s so talented and his movies and numerous acting awards over the years have shown us that. The Graduate is at the top of my list of favorite movies. His humor always makes me smile and laugh. And that is what I did throughout this movie. I really enjoyed the interaction between Dustin and Emma Thompson. It is a good screenplay written by Joel Hopkins. It was perfect.

I felt so good after it was over, and even now thinking about some of the scenes in it makes me smile. Heck, I’m just a romantic. Give me a good love story with great actors and I’m happy.

The movie was really about going on with your life, finding joy, taking risks. Something I suppose we all need to do—lighten up, laugh a lot, and have fun.

Do you have a favorite Dustin Hoffman movie?

I really enjoyed that movie, too. Didn't your heart just break when his daughter tells him that she wants her step-dad to walk her down the aisle? Dustin Hoffman played such a good part.

I haven't seen The Graduate in years. I'll have to watch that again!

Hi Pat,
Yes, that scene was heart breaker.

I've not seen The Graduate for some time either.

Thanks for your comments. :-)
