Storyline

Cleveland. 1973. Marv, the owner of an old neighborhood Jewish deli, must stay open 24 hours to cater to a new generation of clientèle, but straight-laced neighborhood do-gooders want to close him down. Meanwhile inside, hippies, bikers and crusty old Jewish men, caught in the throes of changing times and culture clash, fight over turf and yearn for a waitress to take their orders. Into this milieu drops new waitress, Susan, a wholesome small town beauty who must struggle with testy customers, a dubious romance, and a jealous head-waitress. Her future and the fate of the regulars hang by a thread as Marv takes increasingly desperate measures to save his deli. Written by Anonymous

A Competently made, well acted little Pic!!
8 April 2005 | by vagrantfilmsSee all my reviews

Nightowls of Coventry, has a light hearted charm that allows it to flow smoothly through it's tight 75 minutes. A cast of veteran character actors with a long list of television and film credits between them helps the film's banter keep moving at full speed. While the film certainly has it's flaws , it is an easy, delightful way to spend time at the movies. The best element of the film is it's overall look, ably helped by acclaimed rising star cinematographer Caroline Constantine from Australia, who has most notably shot award winning shorts for another rising star filmmaker Carla Drago. Overall this is a delightful fluid first feature that will appeal to a wide base audience but will certainly be a hit with the Jewish film audiences!!
