Almost Midnight

ALMOST MIDNIGHT

2016

Producer: Alex Keay and Peta Astbury
Director: Stephen Banham

Almost Midnight is a coming-of-age romantic black comedy about a socially-inept young man named Dave. The tale is told in five minute real-time slices of Dave’s life just before the New Year’s countdown over six subsequent years. Through this fragmented technique, the audience is able to witness Dave’s growth from the bumbling wall-flower to a fully-matured man, comfortable in his own skin. Dave’s alcohol fuelled misadventures provide many tragicomic cringe moments until he finally learns that you can’t hurry love.
