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.

Very promising start - I just wish I hadn't researched the real people
29 January 2019 | by eddieo1969See all my reviews

I enjoyed the first episode. It sets out two line that we know will connect. Both lines have sympathetic lead characters Pine a down on his luck reporter, who could be a composite of lead character in the best Noir films. Eisley is the poor, lost, innocent soul, adopted as a baby and brought up in the countryside trying to connect with her natural (and rich) family in LA.

It all seems very promising and I will be definitely been watching the next episodes.

I have sort of ruined it for myself by researching the people. Right now after the first episode I really wish I had avoided the temptation to Google the real characters. I have the feeling the director will let the secret out of the bag quite quickly but if you can avoid researching them I believe it will enhance your experience.
