Movie Info

In a small town in New Jersey, HENRY and PATRICIA arrive at their home and are greeted by a surprise party for Patricia's birthday. AYDEN, BREYANNA, JULIAN, and CHRIS are introduced. As the party goes on, the conversation begins to move towards the inevitable...a conflicted and tense discussion of the LA BOMB. The LA Bomb was a rogue nuclear weapon detonation from a van by a group of terrorists just 7 days earlier in the center of Los Angeles. The following day, due to a heightened threat of a nuclear missile strike, a general call for evacuation from the New York area is put into action. We follow the story of these characters as they struggle with the life-altering decision of evacuation... or not!

Critic Reviews for Sunset

All Critics (7) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (5)

  • Writer-director László Nemes follows his central protagonist so closely that everything is reduced to one perspective, with limited peripheral vision.

    Apr 26, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Stripped of life-and-death consequences, Sunset never convinces us that its protagonist can sustain such unrelenting scrutiny.

    Apr 25, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It's claustrophobic and puzzling, it's challenging, intellectually and emotionally and Nemes' rebellion feels dangerously authentic. Pay attention.

    Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Nemes and Royer create an over-encumbered plot that shifts the focus in so many directions that it leaves the viewer essentially cross-eyed.

    Apr 1, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • "Sunset" has an impressive sense of place, and while it is about the past, it is easy to suspect its tone is more than apt for today, as uncertainty again reigns.

    Mar 22, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Sunset is so messy, long and confusing that you can't help wonder if Nemes is just a one-trick pony.
