Watched The Last Thing He Wanted (2020)

This feels like a film out of its time. True it’s set in the early 1980’s. But it’s more to do with the way the story unfolds. Anne Hathaway’s character is strong and wilful in the first half, but ends up being strangely passive in the second. There’s a righteous political expose in there somewhere, waiting to take down some corruption, but it gets lost in the poetry of its point of view.
