Love amidst lawlessness...
1 January 2021 | by CinemaSerfSee all my reviews

This is a compelling short film that, frankly, could have made for a longer feature. Reef Ireland is "Malcolm", an inmate in a youth detention centre whom the facility's administrator is keen to get out on parole. He, however, has a conflicting motive to stay - his cellmate "Ty" (Shannon Glowacki), who is just a bit more than that. It's a rough-edged production, but contrasts effectively the brutality of their environment with a sense of hope and optimism - even love - as his choices offer opportunity and danger in equal measure. The film has a genuine feel to it and though maybe not for the faint hearted, a strong and plausible cast, an authentic - expletive ridden - script and an intimacy in the photography that renders it well worth a quarter of an hour of your time.
