one night stand off is a dramatic comedy that follows Natalie, a failed T.V. meteorologist in the midst of a personal crisis and public breakdown. No longer employed at the local Weather News, she attends one of New Orleans’s famed hurricane parties, attempting to drown her anger. There she meets Dustin, an uninspired and over-qualified pharmacist. Thinking Hurricane Cletus is going to miss, they head home together for a simple one night stand. Or so they think. The next morning, they awake to discover that all the weather reports were wrong, and Cletus is hitting New Orleans dead on. They quickly discover that bad choices are like natural disasters, unpredictable. They will have to learn to survive each other in order to survive the storm, in this one night stand gone long.
A first feature collaboration for local New Orleans brother sister team, Cecile and Jules Monteyne, one night stand off was shot in their hometown. They co-wrote and co-produced the feature, with Jules as Director and Cecile as Natalie. The film works to showcase home-grown Louisiana talent, exclusively using all local cast and crew.
Cecile Monteyne was named New Orleans' 2015 Big Easy Awards' "Entertainer of the Year." She was also named by NOLA.com as one of 15 entertainers to watch in 2015.

Her recent theatre credits include the title roles in Marie Antoinette, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in partnership with the Tennessee Williams Festival, and La Concierge Solitaire, as well as lead roles in Twelfth Night and Shiner.
