Together Zoe and her dad romp through beautiful Park Slope, Brooklyn, on a whimsical journey of childhood wonder, only to discover that the world is not as simple as it seems. Written by
Super-depressing, but also very well made and worth seeing
This short film was just posted on IMDb for viewing in the US, though hopefully it will be available in other countries for online viewing in the near future.
The film begins with a little girl (Zoe) and her two parents in their home. You aren't sure what's going on, but you get a strong sense of foreboding as the girl and her father get ready to go to the park. Mom looks either sick or depressed and when the two return home later, it wasn't too surprising what has occurred. However, despite this, it's an excellent and VERY emotionally draining film. What I liked (despite the film being so hard to watch from an emotional standpoint) was the realistic writing and especially the excellent acting by the father when they return home to find tragedy has struck.
Enjoyable, no. But a very well done film by a talented group of people.
