Fine sci-fi short

An alien on the lam from the government seeks refuge in the home of a young woman. Although he comes in peace, can Clo still deliver his message to the world? And are we ready yet to receive said message? Once again, Do-It-Yourself indie auteur Chris R. Notarile expertly crafts a compelling and straightforward yarn that benefits greatly from his trademark swift pace, tight economical plotting, and polished style. Moreover, Notarile smartly articulates an upbeat central message about mankind's latent capacity for good and redemption while still noting our more negative traits without ever becoming cloying or preachy about it and makes judicious use of simple, but neat and convincing special effects. The sterling acting by the two excellent leads helps a whole lot: Andrew Roth radiates tremendous warmth and appeal as the benevolent extraterrestrial while Dana Jesberger brings a winning blend of sweet charm and bubbly energy to her role. Simple, low-key, and optimistic, this very nice and satisfying little winner serves as another impressive testament to Notarile's increasing depth and maturity as a filmmaker.
