n depicting the events of John and Effie's marriage, the movie is quite reserved and beautifully nuanced. Many of the filmmakers come from Merchant Ivory Productions, and Effie Gray is very much in that tradition. It's hard to know with certainty what went on in the marriage, but there are letters and written accounts that served as source material.
Last Chance Harvey reminds us that it is never too late to find love, never too late to begin again, never too late to shift one's priorities. Kate and Harvey are role models of love developing out of honest conversation as well as physical attraction. Kate and Harvey meet in the mind and in the heart.
