About the Film:

Midnight in Paris is an exuberant portrait of the soon-to-be graduates at Flint, Michigan’s Northern High School, centering on their expectations and experiences of the Senior Prom. The students’ humor, style, and love, are seen in stark contrast to what the former automotive boom-town is more typically & tragically known for, beyond its city limits.

“The beauty … lies then in its warmth, the care it takes with its subjects, the efforts to preserve the specificity of their experience and simultaneously bring the audience close to them” – Kelli Weston, Film Comment​​
