The Overnight — A realistically awkward night for couples in a new place — 9*/10

  • Scenario: Even though the situation is unusual, the actual way it is portrayed has a solid realistic feeling to it. There are multiple incidents and surprises throughout the evening and night that specifically break the fantasy or perfection of the moment giving it more credibility. Usually, I don't like when the ending comes back to tie loose ends, but here, it seems to really accentuate the realism. Had it cut at the fade to black, we could have imagined a more perfect ending, which makes it a bit sad. The movie is not a masterpiece, but it's damned great and very entertaining.
  • Dialogs: Smooth, easy to relate to.
  • Characters: Well defined, but simple.
  • Actors: Excellent work on the part of everyone, couldn't have picked a better ensemble. Cast members include Taylor Schilling, Adam Scott, Sarah DeVincentis and Jason Schwartzman.
  • Photography: Great camera work with nice sets and decors.
  • Sound: Good music and score.
  • Special effects: None.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Who is it for? Those with an open mind looking for a nice sexy, romantic and silly meeting of the mind of two couples.
