Late Night ★★★½

Certainly that kind of "man they never make these movies anymore" kind of emotional, heartfelt, biting professional workplace comedy/dramas that get millions of thinkpieces but are seen in theaters by precisely six people. They're rare, and will get even rarer after this flopped, but I will always appreciate them.

And it's mostly very good, besides the final scene which is cheesy and pandering and will age so much more terribly than an ending with a bit more ambiguity could have. Emma Thompson, a valued cinematic treasure already, would surely be in the awards conversation for her amazing role here, except that the movie came out in June instead of November so it'll get like, an Ohio Fim Critics Association nomination and that's it. This movie is great and will sadly probably be forgotten pretty soon.
