      Robert Abele Los Angeles Times NightLights achieves something admirably genuine about the queasy mixture of anguish and joy attached to caretaking for the most needy of loved ones. Aug 18, 2014 Full Review Ernest Hardy L.A. Weekly There are moments in director David Midell's NightLights that play like PSAs, but that earnestness is paved over by wonderfully affecting performances.

      Audience Member Heartbreaking, but beautiful. Both lead actors in this were brilliant. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Wow what an amazing and powerful movie. Very much a tear jerker. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member A very honest and heartfelt film! Beautifully directed, written, and acted. Highly recommended! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member It's obvious that this film is driven by pain for the humanity of the story. Some wonderful camerawork, honest performances, and real soul elevate this above expectations Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review edmund p I could nitpick about this movie in a number of ways: specifically how schmaltzy the last five minutes are and the digital look of the movie that betrays the film's lower budget. But that being said, this a solid, genuine film with a great soundtrack, some very well-done cinematography, and wonderful performances from every single member of the cast. It's a touching movie for sure and I'll say this: I have a brother with severe autism, so I take this subject matter and its portrayals in cinema very seriously. That being said, this is the BEST representation of a severely autistic person I've ever seen on film, and that is thanks to David Midell's direction and Stephen Louis Grush's performance. All in all, it's not the greatest movie in the world but it is truly a solid one that tugs at the heartstrings. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
