Gabriel Noone (Williams), a celebrated writer and late-night talk show host, becomes captivated by the harrowing story of a young listener and his adoptive mother (Toni Collette, TV's United States of Tara). The Night Listener is an eerily unpredictable psychological thriller, that delves into where identity, illusion and obsession collide. Robin Williams plays celebrated writer and popular late night radio show host, Gabriel Noone, who strikes up a telephone relationship with his biggest fan; a troubled and precocious young boy. The Night Listener arrives in the vein of Hunting, with shades of other bleak personas he's adopted this decade in case-referenced, R-rated dramas like Insomnia and One Hour Photo.
