Why Watch? An angry, bittersweet little film, this short from writer/director Cavan Campbell features a couple who would probably care deeply for each other if they could only push past the brick wall of their entrenched insecurities.
Driven like a mac truck by Tasha Lawrence and Dylan Scott Smith’s fist-clenching performances, the outstanding single-take cinematography allows us to be passive observers. That’s equally comforting and frustrating as there are moments you feel lucky not to be cramped in the small bathroom with their anger and others where you want to grab Roz and Kenny, hold them close and promise them it’ll all be okay.
It’s a portrait of sharing a difficult life that defies cliche and magnetizes empathy.
What Will It Cost? About 11 minutes.
