Netflix has released the official The Last Thing He Wanted trailer, starring Anne Hathaway. Let’s take a peek.
This doesn’t look too bad. However, I’m a bit concerned that this is coming out in February. The talent involved both in front and behind the camera (Hathaway, Affleck, DaFoe, director Dee Rees) makes me think this could have been pushed during awards season. Perhaps Netflix is working the long con with this one. Time will tell.
Journalist and single mother Elena McMahon (Anne Hathaway) has rigorously investigated Contra activity in Central America for years. Frustrated when her coverage is censored, relief comes in an unexpected package: her acerbic father (Willem Dafoe) falls ill and leaves her a series of unfinished and unsavory arms deals in that very region. Now a pawn in a risky and unfamiliar game, surrounded by live ammunition in more ways than one, and alongside a U.S. state official (Ben Affleck) with whom she has a checkered past, Elena needs to parse her own story to survive. With her disenchanting life awaiting her back home, she is forced to consider what she really wants.
The Last Thing He Wanted arrives on Netflix on February 21, 2020.
