On an elevator, Stuart sees an attractive blond woman in black boots, but loses his nerve before speaking to her. His life is dull: typical chores include watering his cactus and buying a toilet brush. That Friday night, he sees the woman from the elevator get into a cab. He gives chase and watches her enter a house where a party is going on. Deciding to live dangerously, he crashes the party. The somewhat-stuffy host and hostess have a "shoes off!" policy to protect their new carpet. Before Stuart (plagued by a hole in a sock) can reach the blond, disaster strikes. Will Stuart be booted from the party and shooed away before he can connect with the mystery woman? Written by
There is something irresistibly sexy about black boots. And the director/writer of this film knew that those boots would tell a thousand words when he wrote his minimal dialog film.
It's the story about a man who goes on a journey to work up the nerve to live dangerously in his mundane life. When he finally decides to go for it... he gets the girl of his dreams as a reward.
The music really set the mood for the film. With not a word uttered until the last third of the film, it keeps your interest all the way along. There is nothing like a woman in black boots. And Deanna Milligan wears them as sexy as they can possibly get.
A delight to watch, and maturely shot. This is a must see for short film watchers.
