A middle-aged cleaning lady falls asleep on the last subway after working late — and has to travel across much of Brussels to get home — in this beautifully observed, hushed nocturnal odyssey, the third feature from Flemish filmmaker Bas Devos. It’s a droll, delicate, humanistic miniature shot in a palette of rich, saturated nighttime hues.

Danielle Lessovitz’s affecting first feature is a tender romance between a young Pittsburgh transplant (played with raw emotional transparency by Dunkirk’s Fionn Whitehead) and a self-possessed black trans girl (the resplendent Leyna Bloom). The queer subculture of the New York underground ballroom scene provides a vivid backdrop.
