SFotD: ‘Epithet’ Stars a Laugh Out Loud, Profound Patrick Stewart

Why Watch? It’s a short film starring Patrick Stewart with NSFW language and some truly bizarre adult situations.

If you need more than that to coerce you (and if you do, I question your dedication to Sparkle Motion), it’s also an airtight study in weaving three separate situations into themselves for a pristine comic effect. Stewart is, of course, pretentious perfection here as a lovable poet attempting to bed down a hot young thing, but the story isn’t content to stay stuffy (or safe).

Plus, it offers an excellent life lesson in regards to what you call someone’s sister.

Hat tip to Short of the Week.

What will it cost you? Only 5 minutes.

Skip work. Watch more short films.
