Storyline

A militant vegetarian, known as B, recruits a clueless socialite activist, known as A, for a holiday mission that might change the world. They communicate via phone and fax as A completes a precise list of tasks in preparation for their big event. Unannounced, B joins A at the space the evening before the parade and forces A to make her formal commitment to the mission. A bloody robbery involving a neighbor and an impulsive move from A dealing with a catered Thanksgiving breakfast threaten to compromise B's time sensitive plan. As B makes her final preparations and her intent to assassinate Santa Claus becomes clear to A, a life or death struggle ensues as Santa Claus makes his grand entrance, quite possibly for the last time.

A Breath of Fresh Air
5 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Be My Oswald" embodies the very essence of what we love about independent cinema. It is a very dark, twisted and funny story about a young, spoiled woman getting involved in a religious extremist's plot to kill Santa Claus during the Thanksgiving day parade. The film overcomes it's budgetary limitations with strong dialog, interesting characters and a screenplay that keeps you guessing as to what could possibly happen next. The lead performances are very strong and carry the film, much of which takes place in a single room. Is the film perfect? No, but it is edgy, thought provoking and much more deserving of an audience than a lot of big budget films out today.
