In Search of a Midnight Kiss
Scoot McNairy, Sara Simmonds, Brian McGuire, Katy Luong, Bret Roberts, Robert Murphy, Twink Caplan / Fiction / English
The American indie discovery of the year.
Languishing without a New Year's date, and getting his kicks fantasizing about his roommate's girlfriend, sweet slacker Wilson (Scoot McNairy) is persuaded to place a personal ad. It's answered by beautiful, bossy, egotistical Vivian (Sara Simmonds), who promptly lets Wilson know that he doesn't come up to scratch. Yet something binds the two, and the date extends into an impulsive ramble around LA, characterised by bickering, flirtation, competition, and just a dash of violent crime... Like a spikier Before Sunrise, this entirely delightful comedy allows a wholly persuasive relationship to develop before the audience's eyes: flaws, ambiguities, warts and all.
Screening with How She Slept at Night Lilli Carré | USA | 2006 | 3 min
