The Nuns Are Coming!
14 April 2019 | by reidandgeneneSee all my reviews

We saw this in a shorts program at MSPIFF and were blown away by this short. It explores girl friendships and the trials and tribulations of adolescence, especially as marred by new metallic braces on the lead girl's teeth.

This short has the legs to expand into a feature film. I want to see these characters again, and played by the same cast, so get cracking as soon as possible before they get too old for the roles.

"The nuns are coming!" was a line from the short. Very funny in context.

I can't imagine how the filmmakers could afford all those tunes from back in the day.
