A Short That Hit Close To Home
1 January 2005 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I didn't know anything about this short when I first watched it and didn't pay much attention to the fact that it was based on a real story. By the time the short was over, I found it to have connected with an event from my own life when I offered help to someone in need. Well-acted, the only fault I could find with the film was the contrived dialog ending. Unknown actor David Duzenski was brilliant in his performance as a young man on the verge. Bob Bowersox was believable as well, though the role would've been more interestingly played if a more physically strong man had been cast instead of the milk-toast portrayal we have. That in no way is to belittle the caliber of acting and the effect this film has on the viewer. This is must see. I rated it a 10 out of 10.
