Caught this in CineVegas
30 June 2006 | by cordlesspaperSee all my reviews

I caught this short film in CineVegas this year and I was blown away by it.

The film is visually beautiful, but the performances by the two leads really bring the film to life. It was nice to get a chance to see Routh's range as an actor. He delivers a powerful performance that truly shows his versatility.

The female lead, Courtney Ford, also delivered an excellent performance. Many moments that could have been overblown by a lesser actress, were handled with subtlety, which gave the film a very personal feel.

Overall, I found myself very wrapped up in the story and in the end I wanted to see more. This is by no means implying that the film felt unfinished. It's simply that I wanted to gain further insight into the lives of the two main characters. Writer/Director Joel Kelly really did an excellent job of capturing the emotions we feel in the best and the worst of times.

If you get the opportunity to catch this at a festival I would highly recommend it.
