Editorial Reviews

'Twas the night before Christmas in the Southwest, and for five strangers spread out across town, it's the most depressing time of the year. As the night progresses, they randomly cross paths, and in unique and subtle ways, change each other's lives forever. Featuring incredible performances by veteran actors such as Stephen Baldwin, K Callan, and Kirk B.R. Woller,as well as newcomers Mary Thornton and Mitchell Jarvis, MIDNIGHT CLEAR is a quiet tapestry of lonely people trying to connect in the midst of pain. The film also features terrific and surprising guest work from Victoria Jackson and Richard Riehle.

By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 27, 2007
Format: DVD
MIDNIGHT CLEAR is an easily overlooked film: the cover of the DVD is bleak, the description of the story sounds a bit corny, and the promotion of the film has been scant. But what is not expected for those viewers able to overcome the above negative aspects is a well-made little series of interlocking vignettes that poignantly address the impact of random acts of kindness in a world grown calloused. It is touching in the best sense of the word and well worth watching even beyond the Christmas season.

The unnamed town gradually opens windows to some fairly sad people: an elderly woman Eva (K Callan) talks with her doctor on the telephone about her meds and we note that she may be facing the thought of suicide in her desolate life; a sweet woman Mary (Mary Thornton) and her young son Jacob (Dominic Scott Kay) visit their brain damaged husband/father in a rest home (the man was critically injured in an auto accident one year ago); a lonely many Kirk (Kirk B.R. Woller) stands in his isolated convenience store without patrons; a longtime drunk and lonely ex-husband Lefty (Stephen Baldwin) is fired from his menial job, despite a recent promotion, because of his consistent tardiness; Mitch (Mitchell Jarvis) works with kids for a church to assuage his guilt for having survived the auto accident that devastated Mar's husband's life, reluctantly agreeing to his pastor (Richard Fancy) to take his youth group caroling to the shut-ins on Christmas Eve.

By far the best Christmas movie I have seen in years and one of the best movies I have seen in a long time! I wish they made more movies like this!

Simply told, and beautifully understated. A wonderfully told tale about five strangers whose paths cross one Christmas Eve and impact one another's lives in sometimes simple, yet rather astounding ways.

Not your usual Hollywood-type Christmas film where everyone is smiling and a happy ending can be found around every corner. No, this film is about real people, with real problems, in the real world, where things don't always necessarily end happily ever after. And, during the course of the film, we're never quite sure just what the outcome is going to be.

Honest, sincere, real, totally believeable. I could readily and easily identify with each and every character. The performances are top-notch and are played to perfection. Every performance comes across as being completely genuine.

I love the look and feel to this movie. Visually stunning, it's hard to believe this was shot on such a low budget and in something like only 18 days!

Touching and deeply moving! The movie never feels forced or manipulative. And the ending is just right! (I just loved the character of Mitch). A most rewarding viewing experience indeed! My praise and highest compliments to all involved.

I highly recommend this movie and will be looking forward to the next feature to come from Jenkins Entertainment!

"Midnight Clear" was directed by Dallas Jenkins, son of Jerry B Jenkins, who also produced and wrote the story the film is based on. I'm not a fan of Jenkins Sr and expected a rather preachy Christian film. I was wrong, almost.

Stephen Baldwin gives a suprisingly good performance as divorced, unemployed and homless Lefty, and K Callan is even better as the lonely widow Eve. The rest of the cast is a mixed bunch. The story is about loneliness and kindness and some scenes are very good, others weaker. The ending, while optimistic, is especially weak. It didn't feel true to the rest of the movie and this keeps me from giving it a higher rating. Not all problems are solved by going to church.

Overall, this is a pretty good movie, certainly much better than I expected. It's a rare example of a Christian themed movie that is not preachy and can be enjoyed by both Christian and non-Christians.

According to the commentary on this film, Jerry B. Jenkins, he of Left Behind fame and the father of director Dallas Jenkins, got the idea for a short story when he read a statistic that the number of suicides is higher at Christmas than at any other time of the year. That statistic is false, according to Snopes, but there are, of course, people who are depressed at Christmastime. This film is about some of those people.

Stephen Baldwin, in a superbly understated performance, plays Lefty, a down-on-his-luck man who loses his job on the morning of Christmas Eve. Living in his car, having trouble with visitation rights for his children, he wanders about somewhat aimlessly, and depression oozes from his performance in a way that seems completely real. He is, we soon learn, a man who has reached the bottom. His story is not the only one, though.

K Callan plays Eva, an elderly woman, is preparing to end her life. Her family has abandoned her, and she is getting what few affairs she has in order: putting out an entire bag of cat food for (apparently) a stray cat, closing out her checking account (with less than $10 in it), and so forth. Kirk B.R. Woller plays a man who owns a convenience store and opens on Christmas Eve because the competitors in the area are closed. When his few customers wish him a merry Christmas, he responds, "Yep." Then there is Mary Thornton Brown's character, Mary, a mother of a young boy. Her husband has been hospitalized after an accident and is suffering mental and emotional issues that make him essentially inaccessible to her.
