I stumbled across this short film and was blown away by a perfect, simple story that is able to cut so deep. Ready? OK! is about a boy learning to deal with the often cruel actions of his peers while both finding himself and remaining true to who he is. I really liked the honest feel of the characters and the situations. The humor, pain, joy and love are all portrayed in a realistic way - so unHollywood and so appreciated. As I watched this short I thought about my own son and the trials he faces in his own school for similar and different reasons but by the end of the film it made me focus my thoughts in another direction, in much the same way the characters did themselves. It is very difficult to capture fully developed characters and story in a short film but when it is done right it is very thought provoking. Ready? OK! got it more than right.
