Beautifully touching short
23 April 2012 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

An older man (an excellent portrayal by Rick Zahn) encounters a heartbroken youth (a fine and affecting performance by Chase Coleman) sitting by himself on a bench in Central Park; the two have a conversation in which the older man learns from the youth a valuable lesson about appreciating life and the people you share it with. Writer/director Chris R. Notarile articulates in an admirably succinct and straightforward manner a simple, yet profound and moving message about not taking life for granted. The sterling acting from the top-notch cast rates as a real substantial asset: Zahn and Coleman strike up a wonderfully natural and engaging rapport during their thoughtful talk while Erin Hiatt makes a notable appearance towards the end as a young woman. Gorgeously shot in crisp sepia-tinged black and white by Notarile, this bittersweet little short overall rates as a lovely and poignant gem.
