I will always remember this short film
19 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was in high school. I didn't even know the name of it until just a few weeks ago when I began to search the web for anything that I thought might be this movie. I began asking friends if they had ever seen a movie about a small town in which a lottery is held, and the winner is, let's just say they are not your typical winner. It is some 30 years ago since I saw this movie. I would like to see it again. I would like to get a copy of it. If any body knows where I can find one please let me know. I would also like to thank my film appreciation teacher for allowing my classmates and I to view this short film. I will always remember that class, and the day I saw The Lottery.
