On Our Way Short Film

Why Watch? Although director Fergal Rock could do with a better camera package, the charm of this short film comes from the sweetness of its leads. Dorothy Cotter and Matthew Keenan shine here, converting a chance encounter into something special with looks, silent era swagger and obvious chemistry.

Yes, they have a meet cute, but it’s not based on the situation’s circumstances or a wacky locale (it’s in an empty movie theater); it’s sprinkled with sugar because of Cotter’s portrayal of a character that’s decidedly not shy. Where some movies would include elements that are charming for charming’s sake, Rock and company imbue the characters with it so that everything that happens feels light but still organic.

For those who have seen Rock’s Henry and Sunny, the style here shouldn’t be surprising at all.

What Will It Cost? About 9 minutes.
