A deeply touching story of first love
14 May 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I saw Dear Emily at the Los Angeles short film festival and was blown away by the visual style and the sensitivity the piece had. With such a vulnerable subject matter I thought the film touched and executed the story lightly without making it a melodrama. I thought the score was amazing and the images were haunting and captivating.
