LAST CHANCE HARVEY

ColeSmithey.comThe nightingale of mature romance sings a haiku tune for Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson in a good-spirited romantic comedy worthy of their understated comic performances.

In foggy London town American jingle-composer Harvey Shine (Hoffman) arrives to give away his daughter at her large-scale wedding.

Trouble is that daughter Susan (Eileen Atkins) wants her new step-dad Brian (James Brolin) to do the honors.

With no job to return home to, Harvey courts London-native Kate Walker (Thompson) with more gusto than he's probably shown in many years.

As a tender and musically-embellished love story told with delicate simplicity, "Last Chance Harvey" is a winner.

(Overture Films) Rated PG-13. 90 mins.

4 Stars
