Editorial Reviews

They say the darkest hour is just before dawn, and at the Sunrise Diner it's very late indeed. Four couples find themselves at an out-of-the-way 24-hour diner, but they are not all that they seem. Intertwined throughout the night are a middle age couple who are at a crisis in their lives, a cook who thinks he is finally finding his way forward, a waitress in a bad relationship and a young punk and his girlfriend who think this is the last stop before the new world of imagined ease. But the strangest of all are the dark stranger and young girl who don't seem to be part of this world.

Customer Reviews

The cinematography is quite good.
Daniel G. Lebryk
The movie would've been better if they just blew up the restaurant in the first five minutes do no one waster their time watching more than they had to.
Bassplunker
The plot was uninteresting and the movie was boring and silly.
Gene M. Geissler

Format: DVD
23 MINUTES TO SUNRISE plays like an episode of "Twilight Zone"--I half expected Rod Serling to suddenly emerge, cigarette in hand, and say "These poor souls think they're in a diner but they're really new travelers in the Twilight Zone!" Unfortunately, 23 Minutes doesn't have the sharp writing as TZ. It's pretty clear from the get-go who Eric Roberts' character is and how the movie will resolve.The diner patrons are stock characters---the disillusioned veteran; the sympathetic abused girlfriend; the older couple facing a midlife crisis; Roberts' mysterious companion; and the thieving couple.
The script is snail-paced, so its up to the cast to keep the audience involved but they just don't have the chutzpah to reach out and grab you by the throat pleading you to "Care about me, dammit!" Logic is ignored throughout the fikm---the patrons don't eat; the cook never cooks; who is the arsonist that appears early on and then disappears and what purpose does he serve?
The film's finale feels rushed and unfinished.
Not a horrible movie but missing it won't make you feel deprived.

On many levels, the low-budget "23 Minutes to Sunrise" is not a particularly good movie. If you wanted to pick apart the screenplay's flaws and inconsistencies, it wouldn't be hard to do. Despite this, though, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the movie actually worked. The experience might be categorized as a thriller, or maybe even horror, but I see it as something much simpler than that. This is an existential drama, an examination on the value of life. As disparate souls are brought together in an all-night diner, each will have to face the essential truths of their lives. Each must confront a personal Hell and then, in many ways, undergo the ultimate test. They may just come face to face with the Devil himself. Don't come to "23 Minutes to Sunrise" for non-stop action or scares. If you do, your expectations will not be met. Instead, this is a slow-burn drama with a supernatural bent. So while not perfect, I credit the film with taking the time to unravel an actual story and for attempting to develop its characters.

Truthfully. I didn't expect much from this straight-to-DVD endeavor and this probably served me well. The move scores HUGE points as it opens with Leonard Cohen's "Everybody Knows," one of my favorite songs that sets the mood perfectly. We meet the motley bunch of characters before we get trapped in a diner together. There is a disillusioned veteran, an emotionally abused waitress, a couple that appear to be on the wrong side of the law, an older couple struggling with apathy, a mysterious young lady, and a creepy Eric Roberts. The veteran (Dingani Beza) is the diner's cook, and he provides the film with an ominous voice-over narration. He is struggling with grand notions of life and death, with putting meaning and context into his existence.

Great indie. It is not a big budget Hollywood production, thank goodness. Eric Roberts made the movie work. My only criticism is that they changed the opening song from the version shown at film festivals from a very hip "Everybody Knows" by Leonard Cohen, to some punk guitar piece... But anyway, nice cast. Love Nia Peeples. Love to see more by Jay Kanzler.

One would think that a movie set mainly in a diner would be slow and dull. But that is not the case in this competent story of several people who work at or eat in the diner, with one of them being capable of granting a supernatural gift to anyone who will accept it.

Interesting plot twist.

Format: DVD
This film is a character driven mystery. There are four couples in a late night restaurant, all have life issues. Ted (Bob Zany) is a mousey husband who complains he doesn't have a life. His wife Rachel (Nia Peeples) would rather text someone than have a conversation with him. Donald (Tom Sandoval) is a punk criminal killer/robber with serious anger management issues. He can't handle life. Grace (Kristen Doute) is his co-dependent girlfriend. Shelia (Jilanne Klaus) is a 30 year old waitress with an abusive boyfriend. She likes Eddie (Dingani Beza) the cook at the Sunrise Diner who is a war veteran searching for a life. The mystery couple is the ever unlikeable Eric Roberts as Daniel and the young Hannah (Haley Busch). Their conversation is shrouded in mystery and is the pivotal point of the movie.

Eddie supplies some first person narration in order to develop some simple philosophy and theme to this production. He is "searching for God" and now believes life is "just one big lottery."

The interactions of these four couples within the confines of a diner is the bulk of the film. If you need action, heavy plot, or an explanation of events, then I suggest you look elsewhere. This is an indie style film that allows the viewer to make their own conclusions. The film is clever at times and slow at others. It was good enough to draw me in.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No nudity. Off screen implied sex.

This movie was one of the worst I have ever seen. It was a good premise but failed to deliver on any level. The script was bad, the acting was terrible, the look and feel of the movie was cheap, and the ending was abrupt and ill-defined. I definitely do not recommend this film.
