The Best Men explores a universal heartache that every individual has experienced - the feeling of having missed out on true love. Written by
This short film portrays the emotional turmoil of a man whose childhood friend and sweetheart is about to get married.
I am impressed by "The Best Men". Peter, the leading guy, goes through a rough time as Joe is about to get married. His feelings for Joe are subtly portrayed. In a blink and you will miss it hugging scene, Peter's longing for Joe is shown through his subtle facial expression. All the agony of "I love you but I can't tell you" makes viewers sad.
The production of this short is also good. It has great costumes, sets and background soundtrack. It could easily have been just lifted from a big budget production. Or the other way round, it could have easily been a decent full length film if it was expanded.
