Review: 1 Night

Can 1 Night bring together a decent movie?
1 Night is a film that follows two couples at different stages in their relationships in a Los Angeles hotel. Elizabeth and Drew are a couple in their 30’s looking to try to reignite the fire in their marriage on the verge of calling it quits while Bea and Andy are reconnected at their prom after being childhood friends that went in differing friend circles. Both pairs spend the night wandering through the hotel, and even crossing paths several times, trying to figure out exactly how they fit in each others lives and if it is worth more than one night.

This was the perfect romantic-drama that wasn’t overly romantic, nor dramatic. With that being said, it almost felt like it was missing something. With a runtime of about 75 minutes (not including the intro/credits), it was as if some of the ideas set out toward the beginning were not fully achieved which left me wishing the film was just a tad longer.

I did however think the four main characters performances were great. . I really liked how the couples were interacting both with one another and also as pairs. The dialogue, emotions and connections between them felt realistic and genuine which kept me interested. Plus it explored the complex nature of love at different points in a relationship, which is relatable and will keep viewers interested.

Although the film isn’t too eventful per se, it does however have an enchanting ending that makes the value of watching worthwhile.

2.5 out of 5

  8. interested to give this a shot. especially curious to see whether 75 min was inadequate to develop the story as far too many films are too long these days.
