The quest-plot puts a solid frame around what's essentially a sensitive study of a shattered family, poorly served by the social institutions meant to keep them safe.

An unusual and interesting feature that tries to convey the inner state of a non-communicative young woman mainly through reaction shots of her face.

Though slow, it's intense, and you're hooked from its first scene... to its last, wrenching image. Spiro is a real filmmaker.

Fortunately, Night Comes On continues to dial back its sense of drama for its long-awaited final confrontations, which offer open endings that hint at a future worth pursuing.
