What a little gem of a short film. It packs a wallop in it's short time frame. Very sad and tragic duty these individuals as they have to be the "bearer of bad news" to the families that have lost a love one in action.

Based on a episode from the TV movie TAKE 3. Take 3 is a 13 episode series that promotes the awareness of original, multi-ethnic and multicultural, feature-length films, and film shorts, that have been written, directed, or produced, primarily by independent filmmakers of color, women filmmakers and filmmakers in general that feature ethnically-diverse casting and well known popular actors.

Both Archie Drury and Robert Ri'chard are excellently cast as the soldiers who bring the devastating sad news to the families of the recently deceased. Archie Drury , who looks and acts just like a poor man's version of Tom Cruise, left quite an impression on me.(gave me an idea how Tom Cruise could have handle this role had he done it) Robert Ri'chard also did a great job and both these talented actors worked well together.

Irma P Hall did a nice turn as a distraught grandmother who cannot except the bad news given to her about her granddaughter and Danny Glover had a nice cameo bit as a retired military whose son was killed in action and takes the news strongly but very heavily also. And last but not least, the last family these two soldiers must visit is a mother with her daughter and give her the bad news of their loved one..The little girl is played by Elle Fanning, sister of Dakota Fanning.

I enjoyed this short film even though it was very sad but it was very real and that made it for me a little gem.
