Alex Essoe is back! Since her role in Starry Eyes, Essoe has been at the top of my list of who to keep an eye on as her career expands (and hopefully explodes.) In Julius Ramsay’s directorial debut Midnighters, she plays Lindsay Pittman, one half of a failing marriage that’s about to be marred by secrets and lies.

It’s New Year’s Eve, the start of a new year and a new life, until the couple run into someone in the road who becomes added heavy baggage to their already struggling marriage. Everyone in this trailer seems almost too intense, but knowing Essoe, she’s strong enough to carry all sorts of material; the more intense the better. Midnighters also stars Perla Haney-Jardine (Steve Jobs, Spider-Man 3) as another strong performer and wrench thrown into this Hitchcockian thriller.

Midnighters is premiering at the LA Film Festival on Monday, June 19th.
