She's got Abbie Cornish, Oscar Isaac, Andrea Riseborough and James D’Arcy to lead the cast in the highly ambitious film, that tells the parallel stories of the love affair between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, which led to the royal’s abdication, and the contemporary story of a woman, Wally Winthrop, with romantic problems of her own, in addition to an obsession with the life of the Duchess of Windsor.

    Review, "Last Night": Keira Knightley In An Enjoyable Little Romance

    From its long delay in getting here, you’d expect the 2009 Keira Knightley romantic drama, Last Night, to be a disaster, but not at all. It’s merely small and slight, the kind of blithe little relationship film that feels more European than American.
