The Last Thing He Wanted trailer: Journalist Anne Hathaway is onto Ben Affleck’s shady Contra dealings

Based on Joan Didion’s book of the same name, The Last Thing He Wanted is the third film from director Dees Rees and a follow-up to her Oscar nominated Mudbound. It’s one of the bigger films debuting at Sundance this month and is a Contra conspiracy thriller led by two tent pole names in Anne Hathaway and Ben Affleck. As you will have noticed, it is another film from Netflix and is setting the tone for another year in which their features look set to dominate. Those not in attendance at the Utah festival won't have to wait long as it arrives on the streaming service towards the end of February. Watch The Last Thing He Wanted trailer above.

A veteran D.C. journalist loses the thread of her own narrative when a guilt-propelled errand for her father thrusts her from byline to unwitting subject in the very story she’s trying to break.

Rees also wrote the screenplay, with the supporting cast featuring Willem Dafoe, Rosie Perez and Toby Jones.

After the premiere at Sundance The Last Thing He Wanted will arrive on Netflix from February 21.
