New in town and you and your spouse don't know how to make friends? Don't worry, The Overnight has you covered—if you don't mind stepping outside your comfort zone. In writer/director Patrick Brice's comedy of sexual manners, new-to-L.A. couple Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling strike up a conversation with Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche as their children play together at a park. While sensing that there's something odd about Schwartzman and Godrèche, Scott and Schilling nevertheless decide to accept their invitation to spend the evening together so their children can bond. Dinner turns into a sleepover, which turns into ... well, let's just say that Scott and Schilling soon learn that what happens at Schwartzman and Godrèche's house, stays at Schwartzman and Godrèche's house. Patrick Brice previously directed the found-footage horror comedy Creep, which premiered at last year's SXSW Film Festival and just debuted on iTunes in advance of its July 14 Netflix premiere. In Creep, Brice stars as a videographer who accepts a job from Mark Duplass’ terminally ill father-to-be to tape videos for his unborn son. Brice soon learns that nothing is what it seems. Former Austinite Mark Duplass serves as the executive producer of Creep and The Overnight. The Overnight premiered locally at this year's SXSW Film Festival and opened June 26 in Austin. Writer/director Patrick Brice will participate in a post-screening Q&A after June 27’s 5:20 p.m. showing at the Regal Arbor 8 Cinema at Great Hills and introduce the 7:50 p.m. showing. He also will participate in a post-screening Q&A after Saturday’s 7:45 p.m. showing at the Alamo South Lamar and introduce the 10:30 p.m. showing.
