  • Summary: Falling Overnight tells the story of twenty-two year old Elliot Carson on the day before he has risky surgery to remove a brain tumor. Facing what could be his last night, Elliot's path intersects with Chloe Webb, a young photographer who invites him to her art show. Elliot welcomes the distraction and as the night descends, Chloe takes him on an exhilarating journey through the city. But as morning approaches, and Chloe learns of Elliot's condition, the magic of the evening unravels, and they must together face the uncertainty of Elliot's future. (DPO Productions) Collapse

    While a movie such as last year's "Like Crazy" let its early promise gradually give way to sun-kissed montages and tedious melodrama, Jackson's mini-indie not only stays the course but also gets better throughout.

    The film's sweetness is endearing but too featherweight to engage.

    Comes off as formless and inane.

    Falling Overnight recalls some of the more annoying entries in the mumblecore subgenre that erroneously believe that every indiscriminate moment in a person's life is worthy of a film regardless of subtext.

    Disappointing to see the poor ratings on RT and here. I saw the film based on the recommendation of Michael Vox of the Cinebanter podcast and was not disappointed. A film primarily about being alone that manages to be all things, sweet, funny, sad and life affirming. While the setup makes this different, comparisons to Before Sunrise are still somewhat apt, as like that film, if you've experienced a night like this you will relate, and if you haven't you'll hope that you can. Some will complain about the ending but I think it's left at the right place, with the film achieving what it set out to do. Absolutely worth watching. Expand
