Makes you think...
20 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

I remember being told as a kid never to go door to door selling whenever I had a fundraiser for school. After watching Sean Olson's "Latchkey," a brilliant short film, I am glad that I listened to that advice. Of course, that really wasn't the issue in this film. I grew up lucky, having a parent always home when I got home from school, but Danny (played convincingly by Andrew Michaelson) was not so lucky. After being frustrated by his working mother again, Danny goes out selling candy bars, and it doesn't end well. This is one of the few films that I've seen recently that has a truly chilling end. I really hope more people see "Latchkey" because it really deserves attention. I give it 9/10.
