Wow! I came upon this little treat randomly and was sucked in immediately. It captures the authenticity and honesty of each character in this very specific location. The particulars of the dialogue, wardrobe, and behaviors of each person in this diner were rendered so subtly yet strongly, that they become identifiable for virtually everyone.
The tension kept building and only after it ended did I realize it was all done on one long take! Amazing use of the long shot -- Bazin would be proud. Bravo, Miss Higgins! Such an ambitious feat and pulled off so well.
The world should be sure to look out for what comes next from this rising talent. Further research shows that this was a student film from Columbia University's Graduate Film Program. They have a good reputation and this viewer will certainly seek more to screen from this storied institution.
