nighthawks movie 2019
What starts out as a semi interesting wanna be cool New York story devolves into nonsense. Also one of the least realistic depictions of a band I have ever seen. Also the acting seems to get worse as the movie goes on.
Wide-eyed Midwest transplant Stan agrees to play wingman to his calculating and privileged roommate Chad as they embark upon an exploration of glittering New York nightlife, whose darkest secrets are held captive by an elite band of millennials known as Nighthawks.
Nighthawks Theatrical Trailer (01:39 in HD)
Surround elements mostly include ambient activity and take more prominence in the club scenes. The indie production has a few musical elements in clean fidelity. Primarily a dialogue-driven movie, there’s nothing out of balance between dialogue and louder soundtrack elements.
Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Grant S. Johnson’s Nighthawks, direct from FilmRise’s YouTube:
Wide-eyed Midwest transplant Stan (Chace Crawford) agrees to play wingman to his calculating and privileged roommate Chad (Kevin Zegers) as they embark upon an exploration of glittering New York nightlife, whose darkest secrets are held captive by an elite band of millennials known as Nighthawks. Nighthawks is both written and directed by American theater director / filmmaker Grant S. Johnson, his second feature film after making Frat Star previously. Produced by John Hart, Grant S. Johnson, Peter Pastorelli, and Jeffrey Sharp. This premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. FilmRise is will release Johnson’s Nighthawks direct-to-VOD starting on October 3rd, 2019 in the fall. How does it look?
Nighthawks is available on DVD and Blu-ray and for sale and rental on iTunes, Prime Video, and Google Play.
Jessica Firpi: I was intrigued by the build up of the night: Chad leaving the party with the seemingly angelic Caroline, and then encountering this perfectly posed, “diverse” group of what looks like upper-crust millennials. With the bizarre level of intense conversation and pretentious combos of SAT word-laden jargon, it felt like Chad was tumbling down the rabbit hole (Caroline being the white rabbit in this scenario). But alas, the movie didn’t deliver on its promise of Wonderland.
“The problem with our friend Stan here is he’s sensitive,” Chad says in the trailer. “He’s naïve. He’s romantic. He doesn’t realize there’s a precedent in place.”
