Branches is a Simple and Sweet Short Film
24 August 2012 | by seangal824See all my reviews

"Branches" is a short film written by Rick Hansberry and directed by Chris Messineo that tells the story of four friends and their annual quest to get a great Christmas tree for their family. The acting is moving without being schmaltzy or sentimental. The movie is greatly improved by superb narration from the great Daniel Stern of "The Wonder Years" and "Home Alone." His smooth voice is perfect for the heartwarming feel of the movie. Without spoiling the film, I will just say that it is written very cleverly in terms of perspective. Check out "Branches," especially around the holiday season and be sure to watch it with your family. It's about 7 minutes long and it's a perfect dose of happiness one needs around the occasionally stressful holidays.
