Sympathy for a Dreamer

The Best Short Films

Why Watch? Grant Jordan‘s short film takes a common dramatic twist and twists it to great effect. Sympathy for a Dreamer tells the story of a man beleaguered by the loss of his wife who takes trips to the park with his son for a special, therapeutic reason. While the acting is slightly stiff from the adults, the kid here is an adorable ball of dynamite, and the overall sense of the film is a calm sort of sadness that promises hope but doesn’t feel too glad about it. Strong camera work buoys it, and the story shines through delicate writing. What will it cost? Only 8 minutes. Skip Work. You’ve Got Time For More Short Films
