FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
Late Night is a hilariously grounded and entertaining workplace comedy that puts a subtle spin on the climate of the industry. While the script could have used a little more polishing, the layered story at its centre is brought to life by some excellent direction and witty performances that bring the needed charm and hilarity to this timely entertainment industry tale. It takes a different approach to its serious topic and manages to shed light on its theme in a memorable story.
★★★★★★★★★☆ 9/10 – Recommend
