When you sit in a booth at the Nighthawks Diner you break bread at the crossroads of human experience, and tonight a very special guest is bringing their experience with them.
At topic is the 2021 holiday drama A Christmas Sunset, which is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Matt and Trevor invite writer, director, and actor T.C. De Witt to discuss the film and the craft he deploys in his work.
The film is about five friends on a holiday reunion that has been marked by the traumatic passing of the man who brought them all together. The sincere and emotional story rises above the cable-TV holiday movies to become something more substantive. T.C. talks about crafting the script, casting the performers, and making the jump from a stage play to a fully realized film.
