I read the comments of the last reviewer, and I can't believe I saw the same film. Maybe it's a gender thing. Last Chance was recommended by a friend (female) that I have trusted her opinions on movies in the past, and have never been disappointed. This movie was no exception. I found it rich with troubled but well defined characters, a plot that made sense, a few surprises, and it ended on a note that was justified and satisfying. It made me feel good about the time i spent investing in these people and their journey. I didn't know any of the actors going in but they were all very believable and felt real. I'll admit that I do like movies where I care about the main characters and what they're going through, and this film had that. The little girls were wonderful and the actress playing the lead role was strong and sympathetic despite her struggles (or maybe because of them). The husband wasn't as much a bad guy as he was just emotionally stunted, one of those guys who peaked in high school...I know the type. And it was refreshing to see a love story develop slowly, with patience, and involving two mature middle-aged adults, with all their experience and even their baggage in tow. All in all, I found the movie a breath of its fresh desert air. And I recommend it highly.
