IN SEARCH OF A MIDNIGHT KISS

USA, 2007 (MIFF 2008, Altered States)

Director: Alex Holdridge

IN SEARCH OF A MIDNIGHT KISS

“LA is where love comes to die.”

With 14 hours until the New Year, and every intention to let it pass without fanfare, Wilson wants to forget the last 12 months ever happened. Since moving to LA his relationship has ended and his career as a writer has been on a downward trajectory. Broke and alone, Wilson is pressured into placing a dating ad on a website in a last-ditch attempt to end the year on a high note.

When ‘fellow misanthrope' Vivian answers his ad he gets more than he bargained for. Chaotic, strong-willed and enigmatic, she takes Wilson on a sometimes touching, sometimes hilarious journey through the streets of LA.

A streetwise black & white flick pitched somewhere between Manhattan and Clerks, Midnight Kiss comes fresh from screening at the Tribeca Film Festival.
