Bridesmaids #3 is a high-quality short film with excellent characters. I found the story, written by Colette Freedman, particularly hilarious having been both a bridesmaid and a bride. Just like real life, each bridesmaid maid was so distinct and unique in their characterization, it cracked me up. Speaking of cracking me up, how about those crazy in-laws. The look on the face of the actor getting pleasured in the library was priceless. Also impressive was the the clarity of the camera work, great job Anne-Marie Nee. It's exciting to see so many women contributed to the project. Congrats to Jessica Noboa & Alli Steinberg for pulling off a major feat with style, can't wait to see the next one.
