Devastating portrait of a young girl and her doomed life.
Shocking short-film about a young girl who's the product of a broken home and hopeless dreams of being a pop star. Her dad is unemployed and spends his time playing soccer while her mom struggles to make end meet.
One striking feature of this film was the contrast by the girl's fully Americanized rendering of the pop lyrics she sings and the thick Liverpool accent that she uses in everyday speech. (It required me to put on subtitles to understand what was being said)
As sad as the life that she describes is, I was still totally unprepared for the ending.
