It’s been over eight months since I first saw and fell for writer-director Charles Hood‘s second feature at SXSW, but the time has finally come. Night Owls is making its way into select theaters and hitting VOD on December 4th!
The movie stars Adam Pally as Kevin, a proud workaholic who’s determined to impress his boss. One night he meets Madeline (Rosa Salazar) at a banquet and she takes him home for a one-night stand. But little does Kevin know, she didn’t take him back to her place. She brought him to her ex’s home and her ex just so happens to be Kevin’s boss, the Allen State football team’s head coach, Will Campbell (Peter Krause). Think that’s bad? Almost immediately after putting the pieces together, Kevin finds Madeline passed out on the bathroom floor having overdosed.
With the movie’s big debut fast approaching, we got the opportunity to share an exclusive clip from the film. You can catch what Kevin does to “help” Madeline after finding her in the bathroom in the video below. We’ve also got some brand new images from the film for you, too. And, in case you missed it, click here for my full review of Night Owls. (The abridged version? It’s fantastic.)
Here’s the official synopsis for Night Owls:
Workaholic Kevin (Adam Pally) goes home with the beautiful train-wreck Madeline (Rosa Salazar) for a drunken one night stand, but he’s horrified to discover she’s actually his boss’ jilted ex-mistress. After she takes a bottle of sleeping pills, Kevin is forced to keep her awake all night. As Madeline and Kevin banter through the night, they begin to fall for each other.
