Great short from Ralph Macchio
21 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I heard that a short film directed by the Karate Kid himself was playing at a local film festival (Studio City), I was curious enough to buy a ticket for the block it was showing in. I was very impressed to see that Ralph Macchio had crafted such an emotionally resonant and beautifully shot short film.

It's a simple and bittersweet story about growing up. It focuses on a young boy who becomes fascinated by a dancer who he sees in the window adjacent from his New York apartment building. The relationship between the boy and the dancer is initially awkward, but morphs into something very moving and very human.

After Across From Grace Alley, I will definitely keep my eyes out for more of Macchio's work. Hopefully he tackles a feature for his next go-round.
