Each of them is faced with a dilemma that ranges from the hilarious to the heartbreaking and they have until the next morning to make a decision that will change their lives forever. Written by
I found Night people to be an enjoyable and refreshing film. Although the script deals with some difficult subject material it never feels miserable or heavy handed it has a lightness of touch and a fresh attitude about it. An ambitious project made by a first time feature director and a young inexperienced cast I think it should be lauded as a very impressive piece of work and held up as an example of what it is possible for a low budget production to achieve. It is a well written piece, thoughtful and true, funny and sad in the right places, all concerned in the production deserve congratulations for making a brave and original film. The positivity in each of the characters stories and the beautiful photography of night time Edinburgh, the film's real star, conjure up a charming fairy tale quality that shines bright throughout. I think it's a film about hope and the nature of human spirit. I found it to be inspiring and uplifting
