Storyline

On New Year's Eve, Wilson, a twenty-nine-year old guy has just had the worst year of his life. He emigrated to Los Angeles, has no date, no concrete plans and every intention of locking the doors and forgetting the last year ever happened. That is until his best friend, Jacob, browbeats him into posting a personal ad on Craig's List. When Vivian, a strong-willed woman hell bent on being with the right guy at the stroke of midnight responds, a chaotic, sometimes hilarious, sometimes touching journey through the black and white streets of L.A. begins. In the waning hours of the year, emotional vulnerability and bitterly honest humor seem to be waiting around every corner. Written by Independent Film Guide

Quotes

[first lines]
Wilson: The midnight kiss. It's not just another kiss. It's all the hope of romance of the year culminating in just one moment. And that over-hyped kiss, in which there is so much calling, texting, I.M.-ing, planning, hurrying, drinking to make happen, is set at a moment when time itself takes center stage, when you can palpably feel the weight of the year to come, mix with the loneliness and missed opportunities of the years gone by.

Never trust reviews
3 August 2008 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I went to see "In Search of a Midnight Kiss" after I read some reviews online to see what it was about. The reviews were diminishing this film and giving the impression this film was not really worth to be seen. I took the challenge and said I wanted to see it and have my own opinion. Well, "In Search of a Midnight Kiss" turns out to be an introspective journey that makes you ask yourself why so many times you look for love but you only find somebody who's going to play with your feeling, and then trash them. But still, if you want to live and not vegetate, you keep playing the field to find your match to get together and have a little piece of happiness.
