Running Time: 94 minutes
Emma Thompson stars as Katherine Newbury, a pioneer and legendary host on the late-night talk-show circuit, in LATE NIGHT.
When she’s accused of being a “woman who hates women,” she decides to
hire a female writer (Mindy Kaling) to help revitalize her ageing talk
show and diversify her all-male writer’s room. The
LATE NIGHT cast
includes John Lithgow, Hugh Dancy, Reid Scott, Max Casella, John Early,
Amy Ryan and more. Smartly written by Kaling and snappily directed by
Nisha Ganatra, the film takes on white privilege, entitlement and
questioning how women in power are “supposed” to act today.
LATE NIGHT is also the one thing that any and every late night talk show has to strive for: funny as hell, and with something to say.” (IndieWire, Kate Erbland)
With a musical performance by Sam Drysdale
Doors open at 7:00 pm, Sam Drysdale performs at 8:00 pm, and LATE NIGHT will begin when the sun goes down (roughly around 9:00 pm).
