One Night

13 Episodes

How much drama can one night contain? Marvels of compression, these films tell their stories over the course of just a few hours between quitting time and dawn, the perfect setting for horror (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD), romance (BEFORE SUNRISE), deep conversation (MY DINNER WITH ANDRE), and action (COLLATERAL). In the hands of master directors like Mike Nichols (WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?), Elaine May (MIKEY AND NICKY), and Martin Scorsese (AFTER HOURS), each minute becomes an adventure, emotions and relationships are intensely heightened, and one unforgettable night is enough to pack in a lifetime’s worth of tension, revelation, and surprise.
