Double Feature with YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE

2018 • dir Jordana Spiro w/Dominique Fishback, Tatum Marilyn Hall • 86 min • DCP

A teenage girl (Fishback), fresh out of juvenile detention, reunites with her adoring sister (Hall) and heads for a long-planned violent reckoning in this accomplished film from first-time director Jordana Spiro. Switching up the usual focus, the vengeance aspect becomes a subplot to the more emotionally satisfying story of sisterly reunion and reconciliation.

“It’s a tough story, but told through a decidedly female gaze, NIGHT COMES ON blossoms into something beautiful.” – Kate Erbland, Indiewire

“Like its determined heroine, ‘Night Comes On’ burns with a smoldering fire, a heat that is no less intense, no less effective, for remaining largely beneath the surface.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
