Storyline

Dr. Stern, a clinical psychologist, leads a well ordered life, self-contained, neat, precise, and scheduled. We watch his appointments with eight patients, as he asks questions, listens, and advises them that all will improve in due time. Then, he gets a call from an oncologist who gives him very bad news. Suddenly, "in due time" becomes "right now": Stern's therapy methods change, and so do the fortunes of his patients. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Funny and revealing
11 November 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This films tells the story a psychologist who gets some life-changing news. Let's just say this drastically changes the way he deals with his patients--with surprising results. I saw this movie at the AFI Festival in Los Angeles and was not only moved but found myself laughing throughout. Kevin Pollack leads a large cast of talented actors, each who bring something fresh and different to the table. The writing is both clever and honest and I found the directing to be truly inspired. It's rare these days to find movies that not only entertain you but force you to re-evaluate your own life. This films achieves that, much in the way that ABOUT A BOY does. If all short films were this entertaining and professionally produced I think we'd see some of them getting released theatrically. Bravo.
