In Night Comes On, in theaters and on VOD and digital today, Angel LaMere is released from juvenile detention on the eve of her 18th birthday. Haunted by her past, she embarks on a journey with her 10 year-old sister, Abby, that could destroy their future.
The Cinereach grant-supported film is directed by Jordana Spiro, written by Spiro and Angelica Nwandu, and produced by Jonathan Montepare, Alvaro R. Valente, and Danielle Renfrew Behrens. It has been lauded for being an impressive feature debut for Spiro, and for the sensitivity and compassion of the film’s central sister relationship. On-screen sisters Angel (Dominque Fishback) and Abby (Tatum Marilyn Hall) have been described as “tender as a bruise” (The New York Times). Variety calls Fishback’s performance a “quiet storm,” and Hall’s Abby, “irresistible.”
In this recent interview with No Film School, Spiro offers a glimpse at her experience making the film, and how some key elements of its look and sound were conceived.
