Fixing it
6 November 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are elements of Carrie in this effective Australian short film.

Set in the remote outback of the lawless kind, Ruby is the yardbird of the title who is confined to her dad's auto scrapyard looking after the menagerie of animals and making sure the cars are compacted.

However a bleeding nose signifies some abilities of a kinetic kind and her father constant shouting of 'you cannot fix everything.'

When she sneaks into town in her father's pickup truck she comes across a trio of youth torturing a cat and does something about it. A car suddenly moves allowing her to rescue the cat and before long the injured cat is well again. The youths on the hand decide to take revenge.

This short film is wonderfully shot, good use of locations and tells it eerie tale with great economy.
