Intriguing, Sensitive and Touching
11 February 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When Mrs. Wright (April Nicholson) loses her beloved son in a car accident, the experienced and cynical journalist Tammy (Sally Bretton) trains her rookie colleague Niall (Thomas Nelstrop) how to approach Mrs. Wright for an interview for a tribute they will prepare for her son in The Examiner. When Niall knocks on Mrs. Wright's door, she surprisingly welcomes him and invites to drink tea and to rest in a totally unexpected reaction. Later Tammy knocks on the door seeking out Niall, when Mrs. Brown's motives are disclosed.

"A Fitting Tribute" is an intriguing, sensitive and touching tale that uses the refined British sense of humor (or dark humor in this case), supported by magnificent director, writer, cast and crew. I have never lost someone so close to me as, for example, a son, but I can easily understand the human reaction of Mrs. Brown. I like and admire the capacity of Daniel Cormack to concise his shorts. The gorgeous and talented Sally Bretton, unfortunately unknown in Brazil, recalled me Kate Winslet in the beginning of her career. My vote is ten.
