Unfortunately, all Hell must break loose in a filthy meat market for this understanding to take hold. It isn't pretty, but neither is dating in L.A. Written by
I caught this little movie on the festival circuit a few months back, and was very impressed! It's a great story told with a LOT of style and showmanship. For a short the production values are incredible, and it feels like a glossy blockbuster. There are also some awesome digital effects in the film, and the camera-work is very slick.
It's very funny, in a slapstick kinda way. I loved the ending - really cute and surprisingly uplifting.
Oliver Hudson was really funny as the over-the-top date, and Amy Acker was beautiful and sweet as always. There are a few other recognizable faces in there, and the entire cast seems to be having a blast.
All in all, a great film, definitely worth a look!
