The Last Thing He Wanted Trailer Starring Anne Hathaway and Ben Affleck


Along with Miss Americana, here is another relatively high-profile Sundance premiere that is heading to Netflix shortly afterward. The Last Thing He Wanted is directed by Dee Rees (Mudbound, Pariah) and finds her taking on a slightly unexpected genre: the political thriller. The movie is based on the book by Joan Didion and stars Anne Hathaway as a D.C. journalist who gets caught up in the Iran-Contra Scandal when she discovers that her father may have had ties to various arms deals in Central America. With a supporting cast that includes Ben Affleck, Rosie Perez, Willem Dafoe and Toby Jones, the movie arrives on Netflix on Feb. 21st. Check out the trailer below and see what you think.
