Last night in Soho (2021)

Directed by Edgar Wright

Starring Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor-Joy, Matt Smith, Terrence Stamp

I remember seeing this trailer and not thinking much of it and now I admit that I decided to see the movie because there was nothing else to see. So keep reading to see if it ended up being a surprise or a bad film.

The story is about Ellie. She lives with her grandmother near Redruth. She wants to be a fashion designer like her mother. Her mother killed herself and Ellie sees her ghosts sometimes. So when she goes to London to study fashion she starts seeing this young woman and goes back to the 60s and uses it as inspiration until it all starts to get strange.

I will start by saying that the movie surprised me. The story is great and the movie is so well done in terms of direction, cinematography, costumes, and performances. The movie has a story that at least kept me interested and guessing. It is scary and mysterious at the same time, I have not felt so tense in a movie in a while. And the tension came not only through visuals but from the story itself.

I loved McKenzie’s performance. I loved her in Jo-Jo Rabbit and she was great in this movie too. Anne Taylor-Joy gives a great performance also. The film has a good cast, but it is Taylor and McKenzie that stood out for me.

I thought the movie was good, it kept me glued to the film and I enjoyed the fact that I was tense and so intrigued about the story. At least for me, the movie worked.
