Storyline

They say the darkest hour is just before dawn, and at the Sunrise diner it's very late indeed. Four couples find themselves at an out-of-the-way 24-hour diner, but they are not all that they seem. Intertwined throughout the night are a middle age couple who are at a crisis in their lives, a cook who thinks he is finally finding his way forward, a waitress in a bad relationship and a young punk and his girlfriend who think this is the last stop before the new world of imagined ease. But the strangest of all are the dark stranger and young girl who don't seem to be part of this world. A film about dreams gone bad, missed opportunities, love, fear and death. Written by Gayle Gallagher (producer)

Loved this movie
13 April 2013 | by tony-e-ruffSee all my reviews

I thought this movie was very good. I really like the characters and felt like I connected with Eddie. Some of the things that he was thinking out loud about are things that I myself have contemplated.

I thought the dialog was very well written and enjoyed the witty conversations between the characters. I especially enjoyed the manic-depressive type behaviors that the young criminal displayed. I have known people who actually behave like that.

Shelia's character was also very well played as she demonstrated the cycle of abuse to the viewer.

I also like towns like Sauget, IL and the gritty feel that they have. Thanks for reading.
