Some say Webb's rendition felt more independent than big budget. Although some of the plot lines are similar, such as the death of…

FILM REVIEW: "Overnight"

By Rachel Galvin

Set primarily in an overnight flight on Bicoastal Airlines, this film explores relationships and all the neuroses, self-doubt and sacrifice that it entails. "Overnight," directed by Valerie Breiman ("Love & Sex") stars Rachel Blanchard, James D'Arcy and Anthony LaPaglia along with a large cast of characters that keep the audience laughing through gag after gag. It gets off to a slow start, but once the conflicts begin and the inner depth…
