This should have won the Oscar
12 March 2009 | by DoomDahDoomDoomSee all my reviews

I had the pleasure to watch the compilation of 2009 Oscar-nominated Shorts the other night on the big screen at the Bloor Cinema, and as far as I was concerned, this one was the clear winner.

The characters and the actors were good; the cinematography was there. But it was the great short story that really made it stand out for me. To be able to tell such a compelling story and to get the audience emotionally involved in the characters in such a short time frame is really the mark of a great dramatic short film.

I came away impressed and inspired. Too bad the academy didn't completely share my opinion...
