Taking time to explore the Special Features on this particular 2-disc set of "Last Chance Harvey" makes it clear that this film was made as organically as possible - and I think the results make for a story that is genuine, believable and exceptionally well played out by both Hoffman and Thompson.
In particular, I'm happy to see them together again AND was happy to hear them acknowledge the chemistry apparent in their prior film together: "Stranger Than Fiction". You could almost say that, in a sense, this is THEIR nod to "Stranger Than Fiction" - one that's not so strange or unusual or out of sync with the way modern romances unfold.
Unlike "When Harry Met Sally" or something along those lines, this film isn't riddled with upbeat one-liners you'll remember for eternity. What it IS filled with, however, is heart, humanity and the reminder that each of us is entitled to crave and find love and acceptance (in whatever forms they take) at any old age.
Hoffman and Thompson are fantastic together - and their improvisations are spot on.

"This is not the greatest love story or the best movie that you'll have seen in a long time but it is a good movie and really sweet (without being too sugary). Emma Thompson and Dustin Hoffman are what make this film good. Their acting and their chemistry are very believable."
