Dinner and a Movie

Why Watch? Brimming with awkward energy, loving indulgence and uneasy expectations, this short from Ben Aston shifts the meet-cute to the side in order to explore a messy relationship. There’s joy in it, but trust and its trappings are in the center of the action, pushing the problem of developing an online relationship to its injured extreme.

Fortunately, it moves in unexpected ways. Even better, Dinner and a Movie presents a scenario where the characters have multiple relationships toward one another — where someone hurting you can then become your savior. It features three great performances and winks while punching you in the gut.

What Will It Cost? About 14 minutes.
