John and Maggie, a young couple in their twenties, go about their normal morning routine, walking down a normal bustling market street in a normal college town. For a town like this, they're a normal couple, really-- except for one thing-- Maggie doesn't exist. While grading papers with Maggie in a coffee shop, Fred (short for Winifred) shows up unexpectedly for her daily caffeine. Fred halfheartedly invites John to her thesis presentation, but after sensing his loneliness, she invites him out with her friends that night. What starts with a friendly gesture leads to a spark that challenges John's relationship with Maggie. But, despite Maggie's discontent, John continues to pursue what he knows deep down is best for him. Over the course of a few days, John and Fred's time together leads to a tender kiss in Fred's apartment. In the heat of the moment, John glances past Fred's ear to see Maggie standing in the corner, her eyes wracked with pain. We see images from John's memory-- the car... Written by Anonymous

User Reviews

Great premise and execution with one exception
11 August 2011 | by amal-7See all my reviews

I was at a local film festival for work when I first came across "Dog-Eared." I really loved the premise of this short and hence I was really excited to screen it. Josh Tate is a very talented director and will go a long way in this business. He has very little left to polish his craft. The actors who played John and Fred are a credit to casting. Having said that, this project deserves no less than an 8 out of 10, I loved everything about this project with one exception. The actress who played Maggie was so very irritating that she kept taking me out of the story. If you can stomach that, I highly suggest a view, if nothing less than see the work of a very talented up-and-coming director.
