Peter is a novelist who is going out of his mind because his wife and daughter have left him. He's bought a Smith & Wesson and put one bullet in it. He's pulled the trigger once in despairing Russian roulette. Driving to his wife's office, he pulls the gun out again when an angry motorist assaults him. Then, he begs his wife to talk to him, and she does - while she holds the pistol. His next stop is the literary agent to whom he's sent his manuscript; the pistol comes out once more. Her response is unexpected, and there's one last stop before the day ends. Written by <>

Great Short Film.
17 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Please is about Peter, a novelist who wants to see his daughter and his wife again. He carries around a gun with one bullet. He goes to his wife's office and begs her to talk to him. Then he goes to a novelist publisher of some sort and finds out they loved his piece. When it seems like all goes well, until the gun he was carrying fell into the wrong hands.

This story is great. It stars Gerard Butler (credited as Gerry), from Phantom of the Opera. He carries his emotions well. It is a great short piece with a surprise ending. Enjoy if you ever gets your hands on it. It is available online. Feel free to private message me if you want the link.
