Life in Text

Why Watch? In this lovelorn short from Laurence and Jessica Jacobs, a sad sack dumpee (Tyler Ritter) relives a lost relationship as he explores the physical space created by his ex’s (Alexandra Daddario) text messages. Old words, videos and pictures become signposts for an experience now gone.

Channeling “The Last Five Years” via SMS, it finds power in sharing a universal story — one that many of us have experienced multiple times during our dating lives — with simplicity and heart.
