A Really Good Short
9 October 2006 | by (North Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

I got to see this at a showing in Chapel Hill on a big movie theater screen, but it would work just as well on a decent TV.

A girl wants to be a musician when a mysterious figure gives her a card with his number and tells her to call him when she's "ready to play for keeps". After several failures she takes him up on the offer and gets a taste of success, but at what cost?

It was shot really well and did a convincing job portraying different eras of history and the acting is really good. Both the male and female leads have done lots of other projects.

Instead of trying to fill with hokey effects, the filmmakers keep things pure, allowing the viewer to use a little imagination, much like the early years on the X-Files. It worked well there, it works here too.

If iTunes ever accepts a wider variety of short films this would be a great one to see. Well-worth the time to watch.
