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.
A very broad satire which pushes beyond parody to the frankly ridiculous. The mock- solemnity of the narrator set it off perfectly. A truly hilarious, enjoyable 11 minutes.
That's all I can come up with to say about a film this short, but IMDb requires a minimum of ten lines of text in order to publish a review, so I'll add a few more words. The director and writer, John Barnard, has a sense of humour that would be a great asset in making feature-length comedies, satires, parodies, or even dramas with a sarcastic tone. His odd viewpoint would be welcome in Canadian cinema. I hope he goes on to really establish himself as a screenwriter.
