Authenticity.
22 September 2017 | by Howlin WolfSee all my reviews

This is my favourite kind of movie - a poignant indie drama.

The movie spoke to me, about the happiest times being when someone can open up, relax and be their true selves. 'Authenticity' as a thread was a theme that ran through the whole movie, and that's how the film itself felt... Authentic. It made me not want the story to end there, and to be able to know more about these people and their lives - which is pretty much all you can ask for, from a short film!

A striking debut, and a calling card that promises further memorable work, in the future.
