Great Short!!!!!
8 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

this is an excellent short!!! Some of James Franco's best work. Well written, and just an all around awesome short film that you should see. Its available on Itunes and is definitely worth the $1.99... i purchased the short because of my love of James Franco but its definitely worth seeing even if you don't like him or any of his previous work. ************SPOILER************

the film is about a man in a half way house (Franco) who goes to a church to play some blues music with two other men. On the way to the church a boy pretends to drive a car next to the police car Franco is in and they have a chat about his "car". While playing in he church Franco over hears a piano. When he finds the man who is playing he realizes it the same person that was pretending to drive a car. He ends up following the boy home and plays the blues for a while till the cops come and take him away...

the movie is so much more than this but i thought i would give you a little summary/spoiler so you have some idea what its about. i hope you enjoy it as much as i did!!!!!
