Storyline

"Life is simpler in black and white." This line, uttered midway through Bored in the U.S.A., could well serve as the film's thesis statement. Following the budding friendship of Kelly (Kelly Lloyd, Baltimore Improv Group), a bored housewife, and Chris (Chris Milner, Comedy Central), a displaced Londoner, this film takes an honest look at life by disposing of conventional on-screen relationships. Bored exposes the inherent drama in the silences between what people say and don't say to each other. Written by Mike Finazzo

Poignant, humorous, and artistic.
12 June 2019 | by beckystrohlSee all my reviews

This impressive short film is able to capture universal human mistakes and existentialist tension beautifully. Its intentionally measured pace, great actors, and pithy dialogue pulls at your emotions. Others have said it's sad, but there's something about it that feels hopeful and the ending couldn't have been better. Loved it.
