Storyline

"Inside the Whale" illustrates a day in the life of Benji, a young gay man who has always looked to others for everything -- his absent lover Leo for intimacy, his best friend Ava for companionship, and his eccentric parents for everything else. However, on the day Ava moves out of their shared apartment, leaving him alone for the first time, Benji is forced to confront his feelings of isolation and anxiety, which have manifested themselves into a recurring dream, in which Benji is hopelessly trapped inside of a whale.

A poignant and touching short film from a great filmmaker
12 March 2019 | by amanuelakkaadSee all my reviews

I've never written a review before but I was able to catch this film tonight on the National Screen Institute website and I was compelled to come here afterwards. I'm more of a horror/genre fan, but this film was very touching, which surprised me. As a gay man who also struggles with relationships in my life, it was nice to see this shown on screen without the typical "coming out of the closet" narrative that always plagues gay films. Here, it is subtle and understated, but effective. I'm a fan of MH Murray's web series work with Teenagers, so it is great to see him continuing to shine. Looking forward to what he does next.
