Entertaining short
9 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this short at the Maryland Film Festival, May 2006 and throughly enjoyed it. Assumption was shown with a group of other scifi/fantasy shorts. It easily had the loudest applause. James Denton was great in the lead as a man who may or may not be crazy. He plays both sides well enough that you want to believe his story but you aren't quite sure if he is truthful. Beyond the plot summary I can't give any more information with out ruining the film. It was clear that this short was made with the hopes of becoming a feature film. This was confirmed in an answer and question discussion after the viewing with the writer/director. The film was well done but definitely low budget in appearance. There is room for more character development and action but overall if this does become a full length feature I would certainly buy a ticket.
