James Francis Khehtie has crafted a beautiful and very moving short film with "The Telegram Man". Unlike a typical short, this one is very cinematic, has some amazingly fine acting and has a very nice budget-- as the costumes and period look of the picture took a lot of effort to achieve. It's won several awards, and I am not surprised.
The movie is set during the Second World War and the main character, Bill, is an older telegram delivery man--presumably because all the young men are off fighting in the war. His job is an unenviable one...and folks have learned to dread the sight of him because his arrival might signal a telegram from the government is arriving to tell them about the death of one of their loved ones.
Well worth seeing and quite moving.
