Excellent short film
22 February 2014 | by justbob1982See all my reviews

Version I saw: UK cinema premiere screening Actors: 7/10 Plot/script: 8/10 Photography/visual style: 9/10 Music/score: 8/10 Overall: 8/10 The stated aim for Sophie's Fortune was to create a micro-budget short film that feels like a full-length, big-budget action movie. In this, they achieve an utter success, and it is all due to the dedication (almost entirely unpaid) of everyone involved.

Wonders are worked in visual effects, sound effects and music using practically no money. Crucially too, the whole thing is really fun: the Hollywoodisms are presented with a conspiratorial wink that draws the audience in. I am not sure there will be many opportunities to see this film, but if you are looking this up because there is a screening near you - possibly at a festival - then I heartily recommend you catch it.
