Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong

I saw this short film on IFC a few days ago after recording a movie. This short is set in Ireland and is about a woman whose birthday lands on April 1st. It is the set up to be a really bad day and Murphy's Law is in full effect. She is totally pushed to the limit as she tries to get attention for someone to realize it's her special day. Her friends are busy, the neighborhood kids make fun of her and Her handsome neighbor doesn't pay mind to her as well.

I am really marginal on this short and thought is was just okay. Shorts are usually just presented to give a slice of life, rather than the big picture. The acting is good, the execution is well, but it leaves you feeling bad for the main character because she has the misfortune of having her birthday land on April Fools Day. By the time someone actually gives a flying fig, she has had enough. But you know what? I can relate since people forget my birthday. :-)
