LATE NIGHT (Theatrical Release USA 2019)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

Late Night—smart and savvy—has Emma Thompson at the peak of her game. WOW. A great adult movie. Watch for John Lithgow’s terrific performance as Walter Lovell. Mindy Kaling shows spunk in her ability to hold her own and to interact with the rest of the cast. This movie makes one want to watch it to its conclusion due to its interesting dialogue and well-defined, deeply drawn characters.

Storyline

The late night television show is up for cancellation. The hostess is not going down without a fight.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Nisha Ganatra for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Alison Cohen, Micah Green, Milan Popelka, and Daniel Steinman for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson), Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling), Walter Lovell (John Lithgow), Charlie Fain (Hugh Dancy), Tom Campbell (Reid Scott), Brad (Denis O’Hare), Burditt (Max Casella), Mancuso (Paul Walter Hauser), Reynolds (John Early), and Pavarti (Jia Patel).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The movie has a great story to tell and a worthy theme that inspires fighting for one’s spot in the world, embracing change, and finding one’s new place in service. This script idea has been done before, but Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling make it seem fresh and innovative.
