Wonderful Short with high impact/emotion!
26 May 2003 | by (Gresham, Oregon) – See all my reviews

I first saw this short in high school. It has a VERY powerful message. I was able to make a copy of it for my libary. The story follows a family trip to visit Peege(Jeanette Nolan), an elderly aunt that is now in a nursing home. We see the nursing home during the Christmas season. We enter the home and see the rooms and residents and we can almost experience the smells and drabness of the "old folk home". Greg (Bruce Davison) is the oldest son that has flashbacks to his times with Peege when he was young. While the rest of the family makes small talk to Peege who can not communicate well, Greg remembers the fun and special time he and Peege shared. The trip ends with the family eager to leave, while Greg stays behind for a moment to see the light in Peeges eyes that SHE does understand the special bond they shared. While this short is somewhat time dated, the images and emotion it invokes are timeless.

Contact your local Community College, as often they have a copy for their humanities class.

See it and expect to be moved.

I wish it was on DVD.
