Night People takes us on a journey across the city of Edinburgh, introducing a cast of characters for whom there will be no sleep. Each of them is faced with a dilemma that ranges from the hilarious to the heartbreaking and they have until the next morning to make a decision that will change their lives forever.
“Night People is that rare beast – a multi-character drama-comedy in which each and every one of the interweaving stories holds the audience’s attention from beginning to end. Edinburgh emerges as a glittering night-time mosaic of familiar landmarks and hidden corners where each character confronts a moment of darkness before the screenplay’s unexpected revelations lead towards a new dawn. Night People is all the more remarkable for being a debut feature, heralding the arrival of a fresh talent in the British film industry.”
- Alan Morrison, Contributing Editor of Empire and film critic for the Daily Record
“A lushly photographed portrait of the night time ecosystem of a modern city. Night People is a very moving account of a network of care and disregard. It is brutally honest but full of hope. A gleaming film of real power and insight.”
- Mark Cousins, film writer, broadcaster and author of “The Story of Film”
