“Falling Overnight” (2011 American movie) review



I highly remember watching this movie at Cinequest 2011 when I was still going just as a fan. It kick started my annual Cinequest adventures of just watching movies randomly according to what I think it could be about, scheduling, where I happen to be at the moment, or just whatever. This one included this movie called “Falling Overnight” which I had watched with friends.


Elliot meets a photographer named Chloe at her day job at an ice cream parlor, and they both decide to hang out at an art gallery that night. They later hang out afterwards and start falling for each other. What he doesn’t tell her is that he is scheduled to go in for a brain surgery to remove a tumor the next morning. Would his condition affect their blossoming relationship?


I totally enjoyed the movie. I’d have to rank it as one of my favorite Cinequest movies ever because of the emotions involved in it. It made me realize to cherish all the special moments from small to big because you’ll never know what lies the next day.  It was well put together, and their chemistry together was on point.


I didn’t like the acting of Chloe when she’s first introduced because her acting was klutzy and wasn’t believable as a character. Over the course of the film, her acting got better.


It was a movie I enjoyed so much, I decided to watch the movie again and told a lot of friends about it. It was a movie that I not only enjoyed as an aspiring film maker, but also as just a fan. I respect how they shot it in just about two weeks with just the school’s equipment. It’s not how much money you spend on a project, it’s how much you can save. Great movie!

Overall rating: 4.5/5
