Good Night Good Morning

Synopsis: Good Night Good Morning is a black and white, split-screen, conversation film about two strangers sharing an all-night phone call on New Year's night in New York City. Writer-Director Sudhish Kamath tries to discover good old fashioned love and romance in a technology-driven mobile world as the boy driving from New York to Philadelphia with buddies after a wild night out of drinking, calls the enigmatic girl alone in her hotel after a brief encounter at the bar. An all-night phone call becomes a surreal, dream-like experience especially when the limited validity of the adventure gives you the freedom to be who you want to be. Anonymity could be comforting and such a situation could lead to an unlikely romance. Or something like it.

Now we just have to deal

with the cold and the wind

for the party tonight

at Times Square

High wind warning in

effect till midnight

acting with temperatures below zero.

Senior Correspondent

Stan Brooks says folks

are already camped

out on in Times Square.

It's going to be freezing.

It's going to be jam-packed...

'Out of the Blue' by

Ray Guntrip & Tina May

So I was with her for a long time...

I think she's kissing someone now.

Dude! Shut. Up.

What the...


So, you are not a hooker...

You are not a chick I could

pick up at the bar obviously

because you had

eight sets of guys hit on

you all night and you

still just sat there.

You might have been

five drinks but you spoke

in perfectly beautiful sentences.

You probably did get bored in

your room and came down for a drink.

What does that tell me?

I don't know. But...

My name is Turiya and

guess what? Happy New...

Oh, f off.

Thanks dudes.

Will you look at this guy?

That is sweet.

You know what you

could have just stayed home

if you were going to pass out.

You know what I mean?

Think she's calling now...

Aah, I'm not usually this

creepy but I had a little

bit to drink and then JC introduced

me to the prettiest girl I've seen...

...this year!

I'm flattered. Ummm...

Which one of the eight

sets of guys are you?

I guess the 1.45 bunch

Oh yeah. The two

guys and the dope-head.

Uh... Which one of the two are you?

Oh, I'm the cute one. My

friend's always grumpy.

Kiss my a.

See what I mean.


How did you get my number?

I'm glad that you called.

Why did you call? I'm glad...

Insomnia. Jet lag.

Quarter-life crisis.

Ah! So you are in need of my

entertainment services then.

Well, considering you

woke me up in the middle

of the night just as I had

fallen asleep, I guess that does

make you responsible

to entertain me...

...Or put me back to sleep.

Oh, you are in luck then

because when I entertain people

they fall right back asleep.

Which is good enough.

So what can I do?

I can play some music. Do you

want to listen or something.

You know I have an

IPOD here and a TV set.

What I really want to hear about is

that bit where you said you saw the

prettiest girl that

you ever seen and I am

going to forget you said this year.

Ah yeah. She was gorgeous,

she had the most

beautiful eyes and she was hot.

What do you mean hot?

Hot... you know, hot.

No, I don't know.

Actually she was just okay...

I mean she was like average...

I am just kidding.

She looked really

beautiful and I am sure if she

just took a little better

care of herself it would be

impossible for anybody to

take their eyes off of her.

What do you mean I

don't take care of myself?

No... I mean...

It's New Year's Eve and there

you were sitting alone swigging

shots of Tequila wearing

an overcoat that screamed

"Leave me alone, I'm boring".

It was written all over you that you

did not want to look pretty tonight.

And what would I wear if

I wanted to look pretty?

What would you wear if

you wanted to look pretty?

Speaker dude, put it on speaker.

What do you have?

Oh! Okay... Let me look.


I have a dull gold mid-length

sequined dress, a Moroccan tunic,

beige corset, a couple of tees,

jeans and you know G strings.

I am sorry... What?


- What?

Yeah... what is a sequin?

Never mind.

You know what, why

don't you wear a corset?

I think that is body

hugging top sort of thing.


- Yeah

How long have you seen me?

All of a minute?

Uh... Yeah but you

had my full attention.

Well, I like that.

So how often do you
