Interesting for one reason...
17 November 2011 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Short film, interesting for one reason only in my book...

Olivia Colman plays "Miss", a teacher taking 3 stereotypical teen girls for detention. 2 are typical "Little Britain" Vicky Pollard types, the other a swatty shy girl. Bad dialog and pretty bad acting from 2 of the 3.

However, it turns out "Miss", who has been checking her mobile and looking fed up for the first few minutes, fears one of the girls has been having an affair with her husband. A pretty over dramatic dialogue ensues between Coleman and one of the students. The Vicky Pollards look on and make quips. They should have gone earlier as they interrupt what could have been a good scene between Sophie Wu and Colman.

Doesn't matter. What this almost forgettable short film shows is that Olivia Colman is a VERY good acress. Have only ever seen her do comedy before but she is mesmerizing in this 15 minute short, despite the dodgy script and acting from 2 of the young girls.

Seems she is getting good reviews for Tyrannosaur. Have seen the trailer. Will go and see the film based on her performance here.

Nice idea, some good moments, spoiled by 2 actresses (possibly not their fault) spouting rubbish lines. Sophie Wu was very good too...
