Luis Carlos Bogantes,
It's 18:00 in a somewhat deserted Toronto on the last day before the scheduled end of the world at midnight, the end which has been known now for months. Most people are treating midnight as a matter-of-fact event with little sense of panic. In fact, many are celebrating this last day. Most have very specific wants for this last day and will do whatever they need to to make those wants happen. And some, such as Duncan and Donna with the gas company, are working, ensuring that the masses are served and comfortable during the final hours. The Wheeler family are marking the last day by having a Christmas party, although sullen adult son Patrick, his thoughts in part stemming from being recently widowed, has made it clear he wants to be alone in his own home at the end. Patrick's wants may be in jeopardy when a woman named Sandra - Duncan's wife - lands on his doorstep. Sandra is stranded, trying to make it across town to her own home so that she and Duncan can carry out their own last ... Written by
This film was a result of director Don McKellar's invitation to participate in a challenge to make a movie about the imminent Millennium. Instead of making a movie that he felt might date itself too quickly, he opted to make it about the end of the world rather than just the end of the Millennium. See more »
When Craig agrees to lend his car to Sandra and explains what kind of car it is, he tells her it's a 1970 Lime Green Super Bee with dual overhead cams. The Super Bee was never available with an engine using dual overhead camshafts. In 1970 the Plymouth Super Bee was available with three choices of engines. Base engine was the 383 Magnum, then as options there was the 440 "Six Pack" and the famed 426 "Hemi". All of these used the Overhead Valve design or "OHV" design. See more »
I think maybe I should mention before you make any faux pas here, that we have a tradition in this family, that we don't kill other people.

Don McKellar directs/wrote/stars in one small movie that asks us... what is REALLY important?
The world is about to end (how is irrelevant) and we follow a (seemingly) random bunch of people as they fill there last hours.
On one level they all want to make dreams/desires/fantasies they've held onto happen. Our main character, Patrick Wheeler is caught between fulfilling his parents plans and his own.
I don't want to give too much of this simple, beautiful and heartfelt movie away, but I think it boils down to a question of opening ourselves up - to be less alone - and to let love in. I think that one thing Mr. McKellar is trying to say is that the power of love- true love (NOT lust) will get us through - no matter what the obstacle.
I've seen this movie several times, and am the last person to be swayed by big Hollywood films that try to "steer" you to "feel" for their characters. Last Night is NOT an action picture. It moves slowly, and builds to an ending that never fails to bring a tear to my eye. I hope you enjoy it is much as I do.
