Cinema Shows Week 23: Last Chance Harvey, 8th June 2009, CDL, Leicester

Total Ticket Outlay (on 18 British feature films released in 2009) – £82.25

If I was choosing to see a film, I would normally give Last Chance Harvey a miss. But since it is an official British co-production, it had to be seen. It seems to have done quite well at the box office grossing over £2m in 10 weeks on release – almost a million more than Looking For Eric, which just doesn’t seem right. There is obviously more appeal for a rather slushy and extremely predictable transatlantic romcom than the highs and lows of Northern social realism. It left me feeling a bit numb and it could so easily have been written by a computer so conventional was its tribulations. A very small audience in a large theatre – no great atmosphere. A relief to leave.
