As an unspecified cataclysm looms, a group of Torontonians try to decide how to spend their final hours, in Don McKellar's warm, witty and bittersweet apocalyptic comedy.
The world will end precisely at midnight, and a group of Torontonians must decide how they're going to spend their last moments. Patrick (Don McKellar) had intended to be alone, but when he helps out a stranded stranger named Sandra (Sandra Oh), he finds himself with a companion for his final evening. Craig (Callum Keith Rennie) looks up his former teacher (Geneviève Bujold) for a last-minute rendezvous, while a gas company employee (David Cronenberg) stays on the job to reassure customers that the gas will stay on to the end. A witty, bittersweet comedy, Last Night is the apocalypse Canadian-style: quiet, with food, wine, a bit of sex, and a nicely ironic surprise to cap it off. Wonderfully acted by its ensemble cast, and with a sly script and crisp direction by McKellar, Last Night won numerous awards, including Best First Canadian Feature at the Festival and the Prix de la jeunesse at Cannes.
