'HEAD OVER HEELS': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

2012 Oscar nominated Animated short film about a married couple who's grown so far apart, through disagreement, that she lives on the ceiling and he lives on the floor. When the husband, Walter (Nigel Anthony), tries to fix things and reinvigorate his romance with his wife, Madge (Rayyah McCaul), their flying home comes crashing down (as well as their equilibrium). The 11 minute short was written and directed by Timothy Reckart. It's an interesting concept as well as quirky and humorous at times. Of course it's also ultimately heart warming. Not a great animated short but a good one.
