Storyline

Life has been cruel to Sally Grimshaw and she has had enough. It's time to end it all. In a last ditch effort to save herself she calls a suicide hot-line and is persuaded to come in and see one of their mental health counselors - Mr. Vincent. But Mr. Vincent has no intention of talking her out of killing herself. In fact, he runs a service that matches suicidal clients with potential hits. I mean, if you're going to kill yourself you might as well take out some human scum at the same time. At first she refuses, but life is never going to be kind to Sally and she finally agrees - she's in. Sally is faced with the moment of truth when she has to perform the hit. And it is always in such moments that we discover a truth about ourselves. And in such a moment, Sally discovers a reason to live. Written by Paul Leyden

Absolutely Nailed It
30 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Bye Bye Sally is a refreshing, quirky almost darkly comedic short film which is both acted and shot interestingly and brilliantly.

From the very onset until the grizzly end, you are sucked in to follow the journey of our protagonist, the seriously depressed and disheveled 'crazy cat lady.' The role is played seamlessly by the (typically) beautiful Malin Akerman, and is supported well by a number of very well-cast and competent actors.

The storyline is refreshing and gripping, the characters unique, and the shots beautiful. It's dark, it's bold, it's hilarious. It's brilliant. 10/10.
