PERCIVAL’S BIG NIGHT is 87 minutes of real time in the life of Percival and Salvatore’s Brooklyn bedlam universe. The film unfolds in one single shot as the two roommates, neither of whom have much to show for their college degrees and creative minds, live listlessly waiting for something greater to begin. They’re stuck.
Things start to change when, in the same day, Percival loses his job and witnesses a hit-and-run. The experience jostles him into a new awareness of just how static his life is, and the need to DO something starts to grow – pushing him to challenge what he thinks he knows about modern relationships, self-fulfillment, New York, and what it means to be a part of the young creative class.
The film is a Howard Hawks screwball hipster comedy, but set in a world of instant electronica rather than one of slow-cooked, home-brewed, human here-ness. Yet, it appears that the point is still to make a connection. The need for connection is what the characters are driven by – that no matter how confusing and indefinable life may be, there is ease, energy and inspiration in the personal connections we discover and maintain, contrary to whatever fear we may have about initiating or relying on them. It is up to us to connect, and inspire others to connect as well.
One night, one room, one shot. Anything can happen.
