When Sampson and Delilah pack up for school like dutiful children, Mom and Dad employ their own adolescent diversions to try to keep them at home. A whimsical role-reversal story with enough love to go around.

I loved this short and Leif's directorial skills bring it to life beautifully
22 July 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I was spellbound by Leif's short "Big Love". It begins innocently enough and yet strangely you know there's something a little off kilter about it! Although immediately drawn to this "suburban" family, you wonder how two kids going off to school one seemingly normal morning is going to make for a story......but soon enough we are involved in this role reversal dramedy where mum and dad struggle with their anxiety over the kids leaving each morning. Neurosis and a little touch of magic make for a beautiful, interesting, funny and intelligent fairytale. The kids are wonderful, as are Sam Rockwell and Mary McCormick.

Leif Tilden is to be watched!
