1960's film noir is so mesmermizing I wish I could binge watch it through to the end
29 January 2019 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

This first episode was over as soon as it seemed to have started. This story is so intriguing that it will surely capture a significant viewing audience and be the main conversation at the company water cooler. For us baby boomers the 1960's were a magical yet simpler time. The producers have done an excellent job with recreating the Reno Nevada and Los Angeles city landscapes as well as the fashion styles of the 1960's era.

Mrs. Shullivan and I love a good old fashioned film noir/mystery and "I Am the Night" is simply top notch. A pretty young girl named Pat (India Eisley) is being raised by her mother Jimmy Lee (Golden Brooks) until she finds out her real name is Fauna Hodel and her birth mother and grandfather live in Los Angeles. So which 15 year old mixed race girl who seems to be an outcast at her high school by both whites and blacks would not want to seek out her family roots?

There is a somewhat sneaky paparazzi named Jay Singletary (Chris Pine) who knows how to get that money shot that no one else could get and although he comes across as a bit of a druggie loser, we also hear that at the young age of 18 he was writing award winning stories for a reputable U.S. newspaper.

So Fauna Hodel gets on a bus and is headed to LA to seek out her roots........she is not alone. Mrs. Shullivan and I can't wait for the next episode. What a great series.
