A short sweet film taking place in the car park of a bar. What are the kids doing in the car alone? What are the parents doing in the bar? Doesn’t matter because the majority of this story takes place between one of the boys in one car and the lonely teenage girl in the next car.
If you’re looking for a film that blows the Bechdel Test out of the water, this may not be the one for you. On the other hand it is from one of the creative geniuses behind What We Do in the Shadows and it is a testament to his ability to get a good performance out of kids, which isn’t as easy to do as some aspiring filmmakers might think.
Growing up, I remember many encounters with other children that only lasted a few moments and had more meaning than some of my longer lasting relationships. This film reminded me of those encounters and made me long for those moments again.
You can probably watch the film on demand or on Youtube but I’m going to post a link to the film’s website on the off chance that you want to show some support to the artist and crew behind the camera.
