Audience Reviews for Middle of the Night

Solid drama of older March falling for young insecure Kim. Both leads are excellent, Kim in her peak years and having just come off of Vertigo is a neurotic mess but it fits her part, and present their flawed but decent characters simply. The people in their lives are shown in dark tones perhaps a little heavily so perhaps to illustrated the disapproval of society to such a relationship in the 50's. It does lend a heavy tone to the film though since almost without exception they are a smothering and cruel bunch.
