Incredibly well done short film ...
2 October 2006 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

Saw this years ago at the Austin Film Festival and never forgot it. It was amazingly well crafted film. With a great, knock-your-socks off ending.

The photography in this film is so gritty and real . . . the direction/acting is superb. Could have very easily turned out to be something very cheesy. But, it's handled deftly. If you ever get a chance to see this film, I'd recommend it highly.

I don't really have much more to say about the picture. After all it is a short film. But, IMDb requires a minimum of 10 lines in the commentary for some reason, which is really annoying, so at this point I'm just trying to fill up space.
