Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
Good film. Solid. Film is very poetic, lyrical without missing a beat in the narrative. She packs a lot into 20 minutes -- politics, eroticism, desire, solitude, mental illness a lot, and she does it well. What I found to be really wonderful about this short is how she dealt with two people that are apart of something expansive, but they both felt all alone. The lead Adepero and Anslem Richardson are incredible. The lead has a feature coming out called Pariah that I saw at Sundance. She is really, really talented.
I hope to see these two again, as well as the director. I think she has a future ahead of her.
