Storyline

Dr. Stern, a clinical psychologist, leads a well ordered life, self-contained, neat, precise, and scheduled. We watch his appointments with eight patients, as he asks questions, listens, and advises them that all will improve in due time. Then, he gets a call from an oncologist who gives him very bad news. Suddenly, "in due time" becomes "right now": Stern's therapy methods change, and so do the fortunes of his patients. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Academy Award Nominee currently playing on iTunes
3 March 2006 | by shortfilmgalSee all my reviews

OUR TIME IS UP is a cleverly written comedy starring Kevin Pollak (USUAL SUSPECTS), Jorge Garcia (LOST) and a whole slew of solid actors. Writing is quick-witted. Each character is well-defined, unique and grows by the end of the picture. The pacing and editing are first-rate. Film has very high production value. I've seen this film at several film festivals and have never grown tired of it -- especially the woman who has a hard time with accepting that soap doesn't really need to be cleaned with other soap! Check it out for yourself on iTunes (currently in the top 5) or at a theater near -- it's playing in the Shorts International / Magnolia Pictures Oscar Shorts program as a nominee.
