#SUNDANCE: “LATE NIGHT”
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
Late Night follows tough-as-nails late night Talk Show Host Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson), who after getting accused of hating women, hires her first female Staff Writer, Molly (Mindy Kaling).
Mindy Kaling finally has blessed us with her brilliant Screenwriting talents on the big screen. True to brand, her Script is smart and hilarious with an enormous amount to say about social issues. Kaling has created characters who represent where we are in a timely manner and the casting is perfection. Thompson knocks it out of the park as the brutally honest Katherine. Her layered and delightfully-comical performance will be remembered. She is surrounded by an outstanding Ensemble, including the forever lovable Kaling, Dennis O’Hare, John Lithgow, Reid Scott and Hugh Dancy. Late Night is without a doubt a runaway smash!
