Awesome
16 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an endearing short film with great performances all around. A novel concept keeps you interested until the end. The story follows Ralph "Rafe" Winston, a professional clown who has peculiarly never cried in his life, not even from the death of his father. He meets Ginny, a client who has hired him for her son's birthday. The two develop a more intimate relationship as the film progresses culminating in a heart-touching ending. The style of the film resembles Big Fish and Little Children--not a bad thing since those are great films. Jess Weixler (Teeth) and Keir O'Donnell (My Generation) put in noteworthy performances as well. The film is capped off by a great score from veteran Halli Cauthery (The Town).
