Catch a livestream Q&A with star Mindy Kaling on Wednesday, May 29th following the 7:00pm PST Early Access showing at participating theaters
I’m team Mindy Kaling! I’ve been a fan for a while so can’t wait to see what she’ll bring to the big screen with this film as writer, producer AND star! This looks like the work place movie I’ve been wanting to see for a while. A brown woman trying to carve a path in a White and mostly male space? YAS! As well as the dynamic of working with a much older White woman who had to be forced to make a diverse hire? Am curious how she’ll take what looks like the first real ‘Me Too’ movie that reflects my life. The fact that she’s brought Salvador Perez as costume design for the film means I get to laugh and take style notes because he knows how to dress women!
I’m ready to get my friends together to see Mindy in theatres! It looks like the work place comedy that will have everyone giggling! DM me on twitter @cherry_LA if you want to meet at Century City AMC! #LateNightOut
Amazon Studios will release LATE NIGHT nationwide in theaters on June 7, 2019
After almost 30 years, a groundbreaking talk-show host suspects she may soon be losing her coveted seaton late-night television unless she manages a game-changing transformation in Late Night, the first feature film from Emmy-nominated writer and producer Mindy Kaling.
Legendary talk-show host Katherine Newbury (Oscar® winner Emma Thompson) is a pioneer in her field. The only woman ever to have a long-running program on late night, she keeps her writers’ room on a short leash ― and all male. But when her ratings plummet and she is accused of being a “woman who hates women,” Katherine puts gender equality on her to-do list and impulsively hires Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling), a chemical plant efficiency expert from suburban Pennsylvania, as the first and only female on her writing staff.
With rumors swirling that Katherine is being replaced by a younger, hipper male host, she demands that the writers make her funny and relevant again. A lifelong fan, Molly is determined to prove she’s not just a diversity hire, but the one person who can turn her idol’s career around. Going against everything Katherine has staked her reputation on, she urges her to make the show more contemporary, authentic and personal, a move that could make Molly’s career ― or send her back to the chemical plant for good.
