A Sweet Short Film that Converted me
20 March 2001 | by ALS1See all my reviews

I have to admit I had never really been a great Claire Danes fan...on "My So-Called Life," I really felt the rest of the cast outperformed her, and her downbeat, pensive character reminded me of the all-black-wearing, amyl-nitrate-sniffing kids who hung out at the comic book store in my hometown.

But this short film really changed my mind. I completely identified with Lisa, an essentially nice but awkward young teenage girl who befriends an elderly man and his unseen, shrill wife. I also identified with her genuine discomfort as she realized that this sweet old guy would go on talking forever and ever and ever...if she let him!

As the film progresses, we see touching glimpses into the lives of these two older people. By the end, everything is so poignant and beautifully wrapped up that you feel you've watched a full-length feature film.

I highly recommend this one. It's shown occasionally on the Independent Film Channel.
