Storyline

Film description: This visually stunning short film set in the rural wheat belt of Western Australia, provides a candid insight into the life of Ronan, a 14 yr old boy who's been bullied his whole life at school. This accurate & controversial portrayal of life for someone who has fallen victim to bullying and the repercussions which exist, is told by director A.J. Carter in a unique, exposition intensive format with very little use of dialogue. Ronan's Escape presents arbitrary scenes rather than traditional storytelling which provokes audiences into discussion and interpretation of the scenes on a more personal level while reflecting on their own experiences.

Unbelievably Beautiful.... Stunning
4 June 2012 | by xxgymgrlsxxSee all my reviews

It is extremely rare that I give a film a 10/10. This film, however, is unlike anything I have ever seen. The acting is very real and personal. It is visually stunning and the story is told flawlessly. There are many 2 hour films out there that have a tragic plot, but none have touched me as deeply as this 15 minute short film. It is very short, and there is very little dialogue, but it is brilliant, thought-provoking and heartbreaking. It is something everyone should see, and it's short length and the fact that it is available on Youtube make this simple. Take the 15 minutes out of your day to watch- I can guarantee that you will not regret seeing this amazing short film. Not only did the filmmakers completely execute their message to viewers, they did it in a deeply genuine and tasteful style that is very, very memorable. But just a warning in advance- it will most definitely have you bawling your eyes out.
