Of course, sweetheart.

Rarely we see script, acting and directing all go hand in hand and this short film is a perfect example. Kudos to Viola Harris for the brilliant portrayal as Anna. This film clearly shows how the society sees and treats the older people. Smiled at many parts and got teary at the end. Made me think about the elderly and their feelings. Eager to read the short story now.
Cinematography and music supports the story than overpowering it. Great film. A very touching story. The team should be proud. I recommend you see it! What is your next film Alves?
My rating: 10/10
