Storyline

Inspired by true events, "I Am the Night" tells the gripping story of Fauna Hodel (India Eisley), a teenage girl who is given away at birth, and grows up outside of Reno, Nevada. Fauna lives more-or-less comfortably with the mysteries of her origin, until one day she makes a discovery that leads her to question everything. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets of her past, she meets a ruined reporter (Chris Pine), haunted by the case that undid him. Together they follow a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Los Angeles gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel (Jefferson Mays), a man involved in some of Hollywood's darkest debauchery, and possibly, its most infamous unsolved crime.

PAINSTAKINGLY SLOW...but excellent acting.
13 February 2019 | by sethompson-80775See all my reviews

I am surprised by the bad reviews. The acting is superb, and the setting and clothing DO match the lower class population from the sixties era. Someone commented that there was no segregation after 1959....HELLO??? The Civil Rights Movement BEGAN around 1958-59 and there was A LOT of work that still needed to be done. It's an excellent program, I just hope that the pace will quicken as it moves along.
