Timely cliff-hanger drama/ beautiful to watch and over too soon
18 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

Beautiful to watch. This short film captured and drew me in from from the opening scene. Talented writer/director Padraig Reynolds is one to watch. The film's theme of a flawed political character faced with a moral decision is universal and rings true but it was the film's unusual and eerie settings so beautifully photographed that I didn't expect...brilliant. It felt like I was watching a full length feature film and I was entirely engrossed in the characters within minutes. The plot could play out a number of different ways and at the end of the film the Premiere audience was as engrossed as I was.. quiet and tense as the plot thickened. I think everyone was a bit stunned at the end and certainly hungry for more.

I knew of the director from an early career he had as a rock star back in the eighties but I had really no expectations when I was invited to the Premiere. It always surprises me when I come across people with so much talent that it spills over into these unexpected areas. Good for us!
