Synopsis

Based on the popular Hollywood autobiography by Jerry Stahl, "Popular Midnight" is a black comedy that chronicles his rise and fall as a television writer in Los Angeles. Jerry meets Kitty almost by accident while he is in rehab in Phoenix. Maybe it's their similar pasts and their sexual attraction for each other that makes it so easy for Jerry to open up to her. From a bed in a cheap motel, Jerry narrates a miserable but comical tale of his life filled with self-inflicted mental, emotional and physical pain. His life is an open book, with chapters including his marriage of convenience, the growth of his career, the birth of his child, and how all are influenced by his increasing habit.
