Storyline

Twenty-eight year old Elizabeth works at a law firm but doesn't want to be a lawyer. Lately, she's been feeling restless, asking herself why she does what she does. When she makes the discovery that perhaps she thinks too much about what others think, she decides to be completely honest, by being only her true self, to everybody. But this new found philosophy is put to the test when Elizabeth has dinner with her parents. Written by Christina Parisi

A really nice coming of age film
24 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is a short film that was just posted with nearly 100 other short films on IMDb. Unfortunately, they are apparently only for viewing in the US, though hopefully they can work out the rights to show the films abroad as well.

Elizabeth is a 28 year-old woman who is beginning to question who she is and the persona of pleasant compliance she's adopted for herself. Instead of just trying to be "nice" and get along with people, she's decided to speak up and be honest about her feelings and self. This is ultimately tested when she goes to dinner with her parents. The parents seem to mean well, but are also stifling and demanding--and often ignore Elizabeth's right to independence. When they begin trying to force her into their mold of who she should be, Elizabeth stands up and announces her new-found outlook on life. How will this fly? Will her parents accept this? Watch it and see this poignant and insightful film that shows great deftness.
