I learnt about this short through a member of the crew. It's a quiet and enjoyable little piece of film with a spot of excellent acting from Andrew Scott, now famous for his Moriarty in Sherlock. He does a good job of capturing an Aspergian character. The sound is very effective, washing over the beach scenes with surf and the muted roar of music during the scenes where his character enters a sort of fugue state.
The story is extremely simple, the characters are direct, the dialogue uncomplicated. The acting is allow to reveal itself to us directly. It's not a deep film, but it reveals some of the very human behaviour of people with autism spectrum, and some of the good and bad of people who are "normal".
