Storyline

How far would you go to get into first class on an airplane? That is the excruciating moral dilemma posed by this short film. Constance Levine, a fragile, yet eerily determined woman who will stop at nothing to obtain the ultimate luxury. A woman shows up at the right place at the wrong time and falls prey to Constance's ruthless, scheming ambitions. Like Holly Golightly on bad acid, Constance is charming one moment and seductively deadly the next. But there is one thing she can be sure of in coach... no one can hear you scream.

Cute short but not more than that
17 February 2001 | by (London) – See all my reviews

It's not that every piece of film made by a prominent or semi-prominent star needs to be an exceptional piece of work or constantly showing a special merit. It's actually fun to see "major" stars, and hopefully there are also good actors, do a short that does not require highbrow analysis. Yet, I was wondering why Minnie Driver or Mimi Rogers thought this short is the one they want to do. It is told is very straightforward but without any words, so the shift has to be on the visuals and the synch between them and the music. In that respect, the film does OK. But I did expect more of the script besides having Driver physically preventing Rogers from going on board. That's too simplistic. The decision not to use any dialogue was the oddest one but I guess it was derived from the format - short with a simple story. So in a way, it's a Bennie Hill on heels. Slapstick on the way to the coveted First Class Upgrade.
