29 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the 2007 Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films and it's a very rich and beautiful looking film from director/writer Bryce Dallas Howard. Howard, co wrote the story with Dane Charbeneau about a young and beautiful but reluctant photographer named Beatrice (Katherine Watterson) who on a whim, answers an ad she finds in a crumpled newspaper from a man looking for a female companion. Veteran Actor Alfred Molina plays Cliff. Watterson is the daughter of actor Sam Watterson. Howard is the daughter of director Ron Howard and is known for her on screen roles as an actress but this is her debut as a director and she has put together a great short. The film is produced by Glamour Magazine's Short Film Series and was inspired by a story from magazine reader Elizabeth Schemmer. Jeanne Lipsey is the film's cinematographer and Tessa Davis the editor. Scott Hardkiss wrote the music score. Veteran sound editor Anthony J. Ciccolini lends his expertise to the crew of young filmmakers. All-around this is a very good film and I would give it a 9.0 out of 10.
