Storyline

How long can you keep emotions bottled up before they finally spill over? A troubled young man visits a new therapist, but has no idea how much they have in common. The similarities they recognize in one another complicate what should be a strictly professional relationship. And the line between discovery and danger gets blurred by raw emotion--the one thing they both fear. Written by Lonnie Martin

First Session is First Rate
13 September 2005 | by nacho-45See all my reviews

DC Filmmaker Lonnie Martin has made quite a splash with his short movie. Currently working the festival circuit, First Session has hit audiences from coast to coast. I caught up with Martin at the DC premiere, where FS outshone every other short film by a mile. Martin's got the energy, the verve and the eye that every great writer and director needs.

First Session's script, lovingly shaped by Martin, races you through the half hour and leaves you hungry for more. An able cast delivers all of the shocks and laughs and lingering dread that seems to have more meat than a full length Hollywood horror.
