About The Overnighters
- Year Released:
- Directed by Jesse Moss
In the midst of a struggling U.S. economy, the oil
business in a small North Dakota town is booming.
Thousands of desperate people flock there
in search of work. Pastor Jay Reinke is under fire
from his community for allowing these “overnighters”
to stay for a night, a week or sometimes
longer in his church. When the town learns that he
is housing men with criminal records, controversy
peaks and nothing can stop things from spiraling
out of control. Winner of the Special Jury Award at
this year’s Sundance Film Festival. (2K DCP presentation)
