A moving and unique twist on the one night stand...
6 May 2003 | by His Girl FridaySee all my reviews

I caught this playing on the film festival circuit recently and it's possibly one of the most brave and mature short films I've seen - EVER. Brocka writes his stories and characters fearlessly (haven't you seen Rick and Steve!?) and he's not afraid to shock you with this haunting short film about a strange date between an overweight, forgotten secretary named Roberta and a lost, aging male escort...

Keep an eye on this director and catch Roberta when it plays at your local film festival!
