Storyline

Albi just wants to enjoy a quiet drink with his lifelong partner Dee. Problem is the Twin Willows retirement home has an alcohol shortage on its hands. Worst of all it's Christmas and the other residents are not happy either. So in the dead of night a plan for a militant booze heist is being hatched... Gin & Dry is a funny and heartbreaking story about drinking habits, memory and accepting who we are in our old age. It is a reflective look at the relationship between our favourite tipple and our greatest love. Written by Anonymous

Short and very sweet
29 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story of an alcohol heist in a retirement home seems like a good combination of genres, but this short film is more focused on mortality, cherishing life and relationships than the actual 'heist'. The film looks great, Capture manage to make a dreary retirement home very visually pleasing. A very shallow focus is used, so the background Christmas lights flare up to create great looking, crisp visuals.

For a 15 minute film its ending does pack a powerful emotional punch, which is only achieved through the effective build up of the main character Albie. To feel such emotion for characters you've only known for a few minutes is quite an achievement. There is also a great continuous ending shot.

The sense of 'action' needed to be stronger during the actual heist and it could have been given more time, however this is really only one element of the story. As a whole it all fits together as a perfectly short, beautifully told story.
