Late Night

Director: Nisha Ganatra
Starring: Emma Thompson, John Lithgow, Mindy Kaling
Duration: 102 min


Katherine Newbury (Thompson) is a pioneer and legendary host on the late-night talk-show circuit. When she’s accused of being a “woman who hates women”, she puts affirmative action on the to-do list, and – presto! ¬– Molly (Kaling) is hired as the one woman in Katherine’s all-male writers’ room. But Molly might be too little too late, as the formidable Katherine also faces the reality of low ratings and a network that wants to replace her. Molly, wanting to prove she’s not simply a diversity hire who’s disrupting the comfort of the brotherhood, is determined to help Katherine by revitalising her show and career – and possibly effect even bigger change at the same time.

Thompson brings pathos and amusingly severe charm to the pantsuit-clad Katherine. Smartly written by Kaling and snappily directed by Nisha Ganatra, LATE NIGHT takes on white privilege, entitlement and a culture veering toward crassness and conservatism. Questioning how women in power are ‘supposed’ to act, it delivers a winsome, sophisticated comedy about the times in which we live.
