Lee and Mae are a couple trying to work out their differences. As Mae struggles with memories of a former flame, Lee, who is a writer, works through his frustration by forming his problems into a story in his mind. And that's when everything starts shifting back and forth from reality to Lee's imagination...
Writer-director Michael Almereyda ("Hamlet") examines relationships as he ponders the question: when two people fall in love, what's lost and what's gained?
'Tonight at Noon' is based on the award winning short story "Five Fucks" by Jonathan Lethem.
After first reading the short sotry some years ago, Almereyda was taken by how its "different strands of reality intersect and collide" and thought it would work well as a film.
"I like what it says about life. It's about love and loss, it struck me as a meaningful and compelling story, and the shifts in reality offered up strong visual possibilities".
