Late Night

Emma Thompson gives a rich comedic performance that runs the gambit of emotions. We are in Meryl Street’s the Devil Wears Prada territory. This isn’t a hysterical comedy. The organic honesty of the script naturally culls laughs. The well-constructed story of a has-been late night female comedian talk show host and how she revitalizes not only her career but her relationship is an immensely entertaining romp. John Lithgow has some beautiful moments as Emma’s ill husband. Finally, we have a comedy that we can watch without groaning.
