That Party That One Night,, Mylissa Fitzsimmons, writer, director
An honest, compelling coming of age film about teen seedling relationships with universal, ageless appeal, That Party That One Night is reminiscent of mumblecore subgenre but deftly guided by Mylissa Fitzsimmon’s directorial hand. There’s clearly a story-teller at work guiding her characters and their arc. The acting is loose and easy and spot on; with actors handily delivering dialogue by writer/director Fitzsimmons. No gimmicks here, just straightforward filmmaking, with an ending cleverly leaving you on the upswing.
