Closing Night Gala | June 7 | Film: Cinerama | Party: MOHAI
Recent transplants from Seattle, Alex (Adam Scott, "Parks and Recreation") and Emily (Taylor Schilling, "Orange is the New Black") are eager to find a social life for themselves and their son RJ in their new Los Angeles neighborhood. It's tough to make new friends as adults so they're thrilled when, at the park one day, RJ breaks the ice for them by meeting another child whose father Kurt (Jason Schwartzman) invites them over for family pizza night with his wife (Judith Godrèche). But after the kids go to bed the night becomes very revealing for the four adults. There's great chemistry between the four actors, who peel back the layers of their characters as the night spirals into the strangest of play dates. Writer/director Patrick Brice set out to play with the tone of broad comedies of the recent past while also keeping his story grounded in realism. In The Overnight that combination becomes a mix of hilarity, tension, and surprising tenderness as the characters bat around subjects like marriage, parenthood, and of course, sex.
Patrick Brice graduated from the California Institute of the Arts, and gained success from his thesis film Maurice, which earned the Jury Prize for Best Short Documentary at the Florida Film Festival in 2011. In 2014 he directed and co-wrote the found-footage horror film, Creep, with Mark Duplass. The Overnight is his second feature film.
