Storyline Heading
A celebrated writer and popular late-night radio show host, Gabriel Noone, who develops an intense phone relationship with a young listener named Pete and his adopted mother just as his own domestic life is undergoing drastic changes. When troubling questions arise regarding the boy's identity, it causes Garbriel's ordered existence to spin wildly out of control as he sets out on a harrowing journey to find the truth.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Suspense Mystery Thriller - Unlike what the commercials make it out to be, this is a drama with some mystery elements and not a straight-up thriller. Fans of Robin Williams's comedic work will be disappointed by his very serious role here. Sandra Oh fans will be disappointed by her very limited screen time. There are some gay themes.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good That's one of the best things about 'The Night Listener': You can never pigeonhole anybody (at least not for long). It's a film about people with mixed motivations (maybe even compulsions), who don't always behave with full self-awareness or self-control.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good This unconventional psychological drama weaves a fascinating tale, and Collette and Williams give two of the summer's best performances.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 91 moviegoers:OUCH! Rarely do we see opinions this low, especially from all age groups. Usually at least some age or gender group likes a movie, but not this time. Very few would recommend it to friends. This is definitely a movie I would skip.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Gabriel Noone (Robin Williams), a colorful public radio storyteller who, in the throes of his own emotional crisis, begins talking on the phone with a precocious, 14 year-old listener named Pete (Rory Culkin), a boy with his own incredible story to tell about a nightmare childhood. Still reeling from a devastating breakup with his lover of ten years (Bobby Cannavale), Gabriel finds unexpected comfort in his long-distance conversations with Pete and begins to support him in the publishing of his memoirs. But as Gabriel draws closer to Pete and his adopted mother (Toni Collette), becoming a kind of surrogate father, he also grows more and more filled with doubts about the boy's tales and macabre suspicions over who he really is – sparking a desperate, quest to uncover the elusive truth.
