Similarly to Richard Linklater's Before trilogy, this 24-hour romance is as much a love letter to the stunning city backdrops as it is to the two characters at its heart. Considering its low budget, director duo Alexander Holt and Lance Roehrig's first feature film provides some pretty spectacular cityscapes and, despite the slightly wordy script, strong chemistry between lead actors Menzies and O'Reilly.

Both characters are beautifully complex -- full of contradictions and all the more watchable for it. Despair, hope, warmth, connection, and a touch of existential crisis keep them awake and forging forward through the night and the following day. Simultaneously thrust together and torn apart, the pair are ultimately drawn together in search of something they're not sure really exists.
