Surprisingly Good Short-film, 6 April 2015
Author: Joao Figueira

So, "Some Boys Don't Leave", it's a short film, directed by Maggie Kiley with Jessie Eisenberg and Eloise Mumford in the principal roles.

When I saw the trailer for this short film, I can't say that I was really that excited to see it, but after seeing it, it blown my mind.

The story looks simple, but not everyone agrees about what it is about. It's a really funny, touching and bittersweet movie, with really nice performances from Jessie Eisenberg and Eloise Mumford, a nice cinematography and a really nice, but with 2 or 3 different interpretations, story, which you can surely relate to.

In the end, I really enjoyed this movie, and this made me a fan of Jessie work.
