A girl must teach a boy who cannot speak ... or can he?

I just saw this short film shown in San Diego, and found it cute and rather interesting. The story follows a psychology student, Dana (Danica McKellar), who is given the daunting task of teaching a boy, Jacob (played by Jay Michael Ferguson), the lessons he needs to work for his uncle. In exchange for teaching the boy general bookkeeping skills, Dana is given the chance to use Jacob as a psychology test subject. Unfortunately for Dana Jacob is appears unable to speak, but Dana has her doubt, and Jacob's mother is reluctant to help her get the information she needs to really help him.

Given that this is McKellar's first time writing or directing a movie, I have to say that I was fairly impressed. Overall, the story was average, and could definitely have used some creative punch, but the direction and editing seemed very top notch. The film's musical score helps move the story along VERY well, and really helps the viewer understand what they're supposed to be feeling.

I really think the film could have used a stronger script, but overall the film was very well done, especially for a first time effort.
