Harold Jackson III’s Last Night is an indie film about what happens when Jon (Danny Gavigan), a white upbeat businessman, crosses paths with Sky (Judi Blair), a black grouchy model who is engaged. Set in the nation’s capital, the story follows the duo on an unexpected journey of soul searching, analyzing the meaning of life and following your dreams as well as love.
Review: 4 Buckets of Popcorn. Last Night is a perfect couple’s movie because it will have couples questioning if they have chosen the right partner. It is hard to make an interracial storyline seem authentic, but Jackson accomplishes this feat. Gavigan and Blair definitely have chemistry because at no point did I feel the relationship was forced. It seemed very natural from start to finish. This movie reminds me of a 2016 version of Before Sunrise.
I love the fact that it takes place in Washington, D.C., because I am tired of movies taking place in L.A. and NYC. The only thing that seems off is Blair’s role as a fashion model. Her character would have come off more believable as a fashion photographer, but her career didn’t take away from the storyline.
