As with all the best short films, Soul Patrol has an interesting premise that is displayed with style and simplicity.
Clint Dyer looks comfortable in the lead role and plays off well against Sadie Frost, who is never seen out of a posh frock. The story revolves around their relationship, and although there is clearly a secret here, the director makes no attempt to hide it.
The film works because you find yourself enjoying the interplay between the lead characters, while trying to figure out where things will go between them.
Taking a fine line between drama and comedy with a bias to the latter, the film is almost light hearted, but manages to convey a very dark feeling in places. The only negative points are a couple of rather corny lines from Earl (Clint Dyer), which the writer should (but probably isn't) be ashamed of.
Perhaps not a traditional romance (but what short film ever is) this film is very likeable, and well worth seeing if you get the chance.
