In this short film, written by and starring Laura Whitmore, a young woman struggles with her mental health in a modern world, whilst also holding a tragic secret.
The film is interesting and well made, but feels like it could be a bit clearer on exactly the story it is trying to tell, as it feels like there’s a couple of big ideas in here which can’t co-exist as a short film.
However, it gets by mainly on a really impressive performance from Whitmore. She has always been a charismatic presence on British TV as a presenter, but here she also really shines in a dramatic role, with real emotional depth hiding behind her strikingly beautiful eyes.
It is clearly a story very personal to her (she wrote, produced, and starred) and you can feel that in her performance. I think she could have a future in acting if she ever chooses to pursue that.
Rating = 3/5
