The Overnight

The Overnight ★★★½

Hilarious, uncomfortable, and sweet, this film takes place over the course of one very interesting night as Alex and Emily try to make new adult friends in a new town. But their new friends have something a little more "adult" in mind than they anticipated.

It's an entirely slapstick-friendly premise that's handled with a surprising restraint and rarely feels cartoony. All the players turn in great comedic performances, but I would like to see Schwartzman try to play a character that isn't douchey for once.

Overall, I'm a fan of films that take place over the course of one weird, transformative night and this one did it well. And, at 1 hour 15 minutes, it never overstays its welcome.
