The Vast of Night is a 2019 English-language Fantasy Mystery film written by James Montague and Craig W. Sanger. The movie is directed by Andrew Patterson and produced by Adam Dietrich, James Montague and Melissa Kirkendall under the banner of GED Cinema. A mysterious frequency descends on a small New Mexico town in the twilight of the 1950s, forever changing the lives of two youths as they investigate and encounter its origin. Spanning a single night, director Andrew Patterson's transfixing debut barrels its characters through a tribute to the starry-eyed speculations of Rod Serling, as Patterson and his compatriots meticulously render a bygone era. It's one that eschews empty nostalgia through judicious shading of history's insidious margins, and which infectiously captures the wonder of technology, as well as the unsettling risks that come with peering into the unknown. Intermittently framed within the hazy black-and-white scan lines of a television broadcast, Patterson's scope frequently widens to a vivid roaming gaze that fluidly connects its plucky protagonists through a series of increasingly gob smacking long takes. In other scenes, the camera settles with intense concentration on a single subject, achieving taut suspense through subtle penetrative zooms and the beguiling rat-tat-tat chatter of Sierra McCormick and Jake Horowitz's breakout performances. At his most audacious, Patterson eerily fades to black for minutes at a time, inviting the audience to lean into the darkness and hang onto every word of the disturbing conspiracy that James Montague and Craig W. Sanger's evocative screenplay weaves. Deserved recipient of enthusiastic accolades since its award-winning bow at the Slamdance Film Festival earlier this year, The Vast of Night is a sublime slice of sci-fi that heralds both a brave new world and a bold new voice with a bright future. Written by Toronto International Film Festival. The vast of night features Sierra Mccormick in the title role along with an ensemble cast including Jake Horowitz, Gail Cronauer, Bruce Davis, Cheyenne Barton, Gregory Peyton and Mallorie Rodak. The music was composed by Erick Alexander along with Jared Bulmer. Cinematography was done by M. I. Littin-Menz and editing by Junius Tully. The movie has a running time of 89 minutes. It was released on 29th May 2020 and it received positive reviews from critics when it was released. Distribution rights for the motion picture were acquired by Amazon Studios.
