SFIFF06 I talked my girlfriend into watching the short films with me and found that 1 of the 30 that i saw that week stood out the most and BIG GIRL definitely was that film. It's cinematography captures the beauty that Canada has to offer. The acting is top notch from the two main characters. The twist is moves you and brings tears to peoples eyes. I believe this film has something to say to people and if you are willing to find it so you can watch it, it will transmit a different but warm message to everyone. The story is relate-able to anyone trying to find stability and love in their life. It's a great coming of age piece in the best format there is, the short. Truly a must see! I want a copy!
