I sat down late this afternoon with Alex Holdridge, director-writer of In Search of a Midnight Kiss, and his two stars, Scoot McNairy and Sara Simmonds. Easily the best written, most recognizably “real” younger person’s relationship drama I’ve seen since Richard Linklater‘s Before Sunset (and probably the most beautifully photographed), it opens in Los Angeles on Friday. I’ll relate some of our conversation tomorrow.

In Search of a Midnight Kiss costars Scoot McNairy (l.), Sara Simmonds, director-cowriter Alex Holdridge (r.) at West Hollywood’s Le Pain Quotidien — Wednesday, 8.21, 6:15 pm
