PELHAM, N.Y. --The Picture House will present an advance screening of "The Overnight" on Sunday, May 31, at 7:30 p.m., with a post-film discussion and Q&A with the film's writer and director, Patrick Brice.
Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, "The Overnight," produced by Naomi Scott and Executive Producers Mark and Jay Duplass, tells the story of L.A. parents Alex (Adam Scott, "Parks and Recreation") and Emily (Taylor Schilling, "Orange is the New Black"), who are on the hunt for new friends after relocating from Seattle with their son.
After a chance meeting with Kurt (Jason Swartzman, "Rushmore," "The Grand Budapest Hotel") at the neighborhood park, they agree to join family pizza night at his home. As it gets later and the kids go to bed, the family “playdate” becomes increasingly more revealing as the couples begin to open up.
Brice holds a bachelor of fine arts in film from the California Institute of the Arts. His thesis film, "Maurice," premiered at Rotterdam International Film Festival and was awarded the Grand Jury Prize for Best Short Documentary at the Florida Film Festival. "Creep," his first feature-film as director/writer/actor (co-starring Mark Duplass), was produced with Blumhouse Productions ("Paranormal Activity," "Insidious").
"The Overnight" is Brice’s second feature-film and in addition to Sundance, has screened at the South by Southwest Film Festival, the Tribeca Film Festival, and the San Francisco International Film Festival among others. Brice lives and works in Los Angeles.
Tickets to the screening of "The Overnight" and post-film discussion are $12 for general admission, $6 for members, and $10 for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased at www.thepicturehouse.org or at the box office, 175 Wolfs Lane, Pelham, N.Y. 10803.
