The Overnight Express

The Overnight Movie Poster

A long day’s journey into night, without the day part.  Ella Taylor, NPR:

[Writer-Director] Brice manages admirably to make his comedy at once daring and earnest, outlandish and relatable, obscene and sweet.

After aptly applying “squirmy” to The OvernightDavid Edelstein concludes:

Does Brice even fully grasp what he’s getting at? Maybe not. That’s why this is such a juicy specimen of the Cocktail Party Walpurgisnacht subgenre. He’s in nearly the same place as his riven characters.

I quite enjoyed this romantic comedy-drama, which held me engaged from start to finish.  There might have been a bit more, but let’s not be greedy.  8/10
