When it comes to original movies Netflix has evolved into a powerhouse. In 2018 Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma” received tons of praise and end of the year awards. 2019 was even bigger with movies like “Marriage Story”, “The Irishman”, and others earning the streaming giant a whopping 24 Oscar nominations. It hasn’t taken them long to excite us for 2020.
“The Last Thing He Wanted” is a political thriller with an eye-catching cast: Anne Hathaway, Ben Affleck, Rosie Perez, and Willem Dafoe. More exciting is it’s the follow up film for director and co-writer Dee Rees. Her last movie “Mudbound” was one of my favorites from 2017 so this is a must-see for me. The first trailer has landed and things look promising.
We won’t have to wait long. “The Last Thing He Wanted” premieres at Sundance then hits Netflix ￼on February 21st. Check out the new trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
