Adam Reid's film is about as perfect and heartfelt a short film as it is possible to make. It's like beautifully crafted music to the eyes and heart. I would find it astounding if it didn't clean up at the festivals it goes to, and would be surprised if it isn't nominated for an Academy Award (TM). While the Widow is Away proves that a short film is not in a lesser category than a feature film, but that the form is less important than the experience of its creation. While at the Seattle International Film Festival with my own short film I met Adam, but only was able to see his short upon getting back home. It was then that I realized it was the best film that was at the festival--in total. It's so good I don't even feel envious that my short film isn't as good: it's on another level. SEE IT.
