'A Night Without Armor' movie Review |

'A Night Without Armor' Review | Hollywood Reporter: "Pepper Binkley and Jacob Fishel are strangers in the night in Steven Alexander's talky meditation on love and duty.
A ships-passing-in-the-night weepie aimed as much at sensitive men as the women with a soft spot for them, Steven Alexander's A Night Without Armor is a two-hander whose attempts to transcend staginess generally fall flat. Some who happen across it will respond to its talky earnestness about love and idealism, but Before Sunrise it ain't, and commercial prospects are very slim.

Jacob Fishel makes a rocky start as Adam, a man escaping marital strife with a solitary night watching a meteor shower near New Orleans. Awkward in a voiceover alluding to the big questions he needs to ponder, the actor is even stiffer when a strange woman intrudes on the spot Adam has chosen for stargazing. As Nicole (Pepper Binkley) nervously makes getting-to-know-you chitchat, he is taciturn to the point of rudeness, but not in a very believable way."
