Storyline

In New York City, a man in a suit and tie has undisclosed problems: his corporate I.D. has expired and he's denied entrance to an office building. A young woman cadges money from strangers with an emotional story of losing her ride home and needing funds. One morning at a diner, he offers her a job. She accepts with an eye to anything of value in his flat. Then, his conversation turns to raving. Take her wrap, fellas. Where can this lead? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Good Short Film
18 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

I viewed this film and then read the comments. I was surprised by the bad comments. I thought(as an ordinary film viewer)that it was an enjoyable short film. I enjoyed the acting - which was absolutely not as bad as the other reviewers thought. I think Zooey Deschanel has a great future as an actor with the right film. Bill Irwin is an accomplished actor. This part may not have been the right one for him.

I would think that developing two characters in less than twenty minutes is at most impossible. This film is simply a slice of life--and I believe it accomplished that task. Having worked in New York City for seven years early in my business career helped my appreciation of this slice of life.
