#SUNDANCE: “NIGHT COMES ON” REVIEW
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
Night Comes On follows Angel (Dominique Fishback) and her 10-year-old sister Abby (Tatum Marilyn Hall) who are apart of the foster care system. When Angel gets released from a juvenile detention centre on the eve of her 18th birthday, she goes on a journey with Abby that could ruin both of their futures.
In Writer-Director Jordana Spiro’s first Feature Film she crafts an honest depiction of the troubles children in foster care go through. Both when they are in the program and the moments following their release. Newcomer Fishback is marvelous as the mistreated and dejected Angel. And Hall is charming as the bright spirited Abby. They have great chemistry and challenge each other in every scene, investing us every step of the way.
