Hathaway And Affleck Star In “The Last Thing He Wanted”

When you bring together a stellar cast, rich source material, and a thrilling story, you really can’t miss. And that’s exactly what Netflix has done for one of their most exciting releases of 2020, “The Last Thing He Wanted”. This journalistic thriller has a powerful team to bring its titular novel to life with a film that combines family drama, political intrigue, and more.

“A veteran D.C. journalist (Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway) loses the thread of her own narrative when a guilt-propelled errand for her father (Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe) thrusts her from byline to unwitting subject in the very story she’s trying to break,” the description explains. “Academy Award nominee Dee Rees directs her adaptation of Joan Didion’s namesake novel, co-starring Oscar winner Ben Affleck.”
