Aro Favourite In Search Of A Midnight Kiss


2007, 90 minutes
Dir. Alex Holdridge
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama, Comedy / Romance, Independent


Aroview: Restoring our faith in the unreliable indie rom-com genre, this terrific example takes place on New Years Eve in Los Angeles, where two unlikely loners meet up via an Internet listing and spend an eventful, unpredictable evening together.

McNairy is the perfect male slacker protagonist with just the right mix of self-loathing and self-confidence, and he 'meets his match' in Simmonds' hard-nosed neurotic, whom he, and we the audience, gradually warm to. With genuine wit, intelligence and insight into the yearnings of Gen Y's aging youth, and the added bonus of a predominant yet rarely-seen downtown LA backdrop, dir. Alex Holdridge has created a special film with two magic ingredients: characters (and performances) you won't easily forget.
