A frantic young woman begs a stranger to help save her marked husband, not realizing that the stranger is the hit man hired to kill him. Experimental digital movie shot entirely in one take and in real time.
A 19th century French aristocrat, notorious for his scathing memoirs about life in Russia, travels through the Russian State Hermitage Museum and encounters historical figures from the last 200+ years.
Addison, a struggling screenwriter, is polishing the script for "Kosmos," the latest blockbuster from director Norton Kavanagh. Confined in a hotel just days before the shoot, Addison finds himself torn between his conflicts with Norton and his inability to love girlfriend and actress, Holly Bedeau. Meanwhile, across the hall, Scarlett and Dean celebrate the holiday together as they prepare for the last promotional tour of Dean's autobiographical novel, "Years of Perpetual Motion." When Dean opts to spend his evening with a few friends, Scarlett is left contemplating the love they once shared and the fear that it will never return. Written by
Honestly, I have never seen anything quite like "Midnight." As the Saturday night feature at the Boston International Film Festival, I figured it was going to be great and it really was a great experience. The movie is split screen, with both sides being filmed in one take! It is amazing to see the two stories tie together, as it follows the ups and downs of two couples staying in the same hotel on New Year's Eve.
Now I did give it a "10" because it was so original and had a very interesting storyline, but it is quite slow and you need to be patient as you watch the characters and the plot unfold. Believe me, it is worth the wait! This is truly a concept film worth checking out. Hopefully, this will appear at other festivals around the country because it's unique style is not to be missed.
