Although exploring primarily Isobel's connection to her boyfriend Peter, "Falling Objects" looks at the changing nature of all relationships, represented by Isobel's best friend, the eerie exhibition Isobel is curating (photos by Roe Ethridge), the exhibition's artist, and the vastness and emptiness of the landscape around Isobel, beckoning her away from a relationship that has already died.

The beauty and crispness of the visuals in this stunning short film are juxtaposed against the painful messiness of love lost. Mireille Enos and Kevin Rahm portray so touchingly that terrible state of affairs when affection and care have replaced what used to be love. The quiet expanse of the landscape provides a sense of hope and openness even in the midst of endings and closings.
The director clearly has a visual eye, surprising the viewer with strange and beautiful images like the diver by the side of the road. These fleeting, somewhat ethereal images fit so perfectly in this other-worldly landscape.
