Is “All Day and One Night” Based on a True Story?
The film’s premise may be generic, but All Day and A Night isn’t really based on a true story. Joe Robert Cole who wrote the film mentions: “This character, Jah, and this story were not far from what I grew up with.”
Adding to the authentic dynamism of the story is the fact that Ashton (boy) and Jeffrey (father) hadn’t spent much time together off screen. This allowed them to portray the father-son reunion very realistically.

The film presents critical issues with the utmost care and thoughtfulness. The story may look ordinary or familiar, but it has much more to offer morally and meaningfully. The style of directing is not exaggerated at first and later the dramatic scope of the film unfolds.
It’s a very authentic film that tells the harsh reality rather than softening things up. The film also received mixed reviews from a wider audience. The opinion can be subjective.

The shooting of the film took place in Oakland, California, USA.
