★★★★ review by Jason on Letterboxd
The way the narrative of this film unfolded was of no surprise, but I was really won over by it. Adam Pally is super underrated as an actor and deserves bigger stardom. He is great. And the big revelation is Rosa Salazar who I've not seen before. She has a kind of Aubrey Plaza quality about her and I thought she was fantastic. Both actors gave their characters a lot of personality and charm and I was rooting for the both of them.

#27 on the Scavenger hunt 20 list (shot in mainly one location)
Accidental 'overdose double-feature' watching this right after Len and Company- This movie also has great dialogue but more importantly great, natural, compelling actors who actually made you interested as the dynamics shift.
Some of hit pretty close to home; i too quit playing the violin around 9th grade, lol.
I'm also a (debatable) train wreck who dates terrible guys.

★★★★ review by nthnmartin on Letterboxd
It's the chemistry of these two leads that makes Night Owls so great. A film about brokenness and pain and how it often determines who we are. As we watch these two characters interact, often hurting one another, we just want them to figure it all out. We want them to work out their problems with each other, and to figure out who they are. It's a strong script, with a director who knows how to make these often unlikeable characters enjoyable.
