Man befriends Boy, but then what?
20 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

A very intense short and very cleverly written. A school boy makes his way home and befriends a loner from the estate he lives on, not sure where everything is leading with this strange friendship, both Man and Boy find themselves in a predicament and your not quite sure what to believe and thats the beauty of this piece, some incredible performances from, Calum Mcnab, Jeff Bell and Eddie Marsan,it will keep you on the edge or your seat as you decide what happened......have you made the right choice?! Great directing from Marcus McSweeny and David Leon, this short has had much praise including a special mention of thanks at this years 'Brest annual short film fest'.
