SynopsisSet in the nocturnal underbelly of new L.A., the story follows Lou Bloom (Gyllenhall) a driven young man desperate for work, who discovers the city`s attractive high-speed world of crime journalism. Lou starts shooting footage of car-accidents, fires, murder and other mayhem.
Lou gets into a cut-throat, dangerous realm of ``nightcrawling`` where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents.
When the morning news director Nina (Rene Russo) sees his work, she encourages him to continue the awesome job. This leads to a new, interesting and deliriously thrilling journey where Lou becomes the star of his own story....in director Dan Gilroy`s directorial debut.
