All Nighter


Rent It

No, this isn’t a remake of the 1987 movie with Susanna Hoffs, but its premise is quite familiar. Banjo-playing Martin (Emile Hirsch) and his girlfriend Ginnie (Analeigh Tipton) have been together a while and the time comes for him to meet her father- the hard-nosed, rich “man’s man” Frank (J.K. Simmons). They meet him at a restaurant for dinner and of course Martin has to make a good first impression, but he pretty much blows it- first making him laugh at his choice of a vegetarian dinner instead of a nice steak, then the old movie classic mistake of spilling a drink on him. Ginnie doesn’t mind this though, as she and her dad haven’t really been close- he spends a lot of time traveling the world for business and pays her little attention, already having divorced her mother years ago.
