Last night was a surprise. This morning when they woke together? It was tricky. Dave is much older than Ester. Lucy is Dave's daughter. Ester and Lucy are friends. Both went out with Rick. For Dave, there's a lot to sort out, not least his own awakening. Written by
John Mawson, as writer, producer, and lead actor of the film, has created an honest short that shows off his chops in each of his roles. With credible dialogue, the short is a glimpse into the morning after a steamy tryst between an older man and a young, gorgeous twenty-something. Even with what some may dub a cinematic trope as a premise, it never feels false to the viewer. Ester, the vivacious young beauty played by Augie Duke, progresses from an open range of emotion- from clearly shocked at the age of her one-night-stand partner, to charming and seductive, to ultimately a state of empathy and understanding. Duke's performance is the standout of the piece, buoyed by Mawson's pen. Her character walks the fine line between the male stereotypical dream girl and a flippant, incomprehensible woman of today's society, while having the best qualities of both. Mawson's performance is note-perfect. Stef Dawson plays Mawson's daughter, Lucy; sadly, though her name is the closest thing to a star presence about the movie, her performance is the least enjoyable thing about the film. Ably directed by Gerard Roxburgh, though his editing leaves something to be desired. 7 out of 10 for writing, cinematography and the performance of the two leads alone. Well worth a watch.
