Very Good Short Film
29 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have to say this was very good, Elliot Tittensor shows a different side to his acting, and shows he has more talent than just playing Carl in Shameless and isn't afraid to do more serious stuff.

Naveed Choudhry was also very good, he portrays a young Asian who goes with another boy for the first time, you can feel his tension, at first and then he starts to let go a bit then feels guilty then it ends on a bit of a high.

For a 14 minute film it was very good, well shot, well acted, nice directing from Dominic Leclerc.

It came as part of a series of shorts on a film called 'Boys On Film 4' and this one is easily the best one out of the nine shorts.
