9Fest Finalist – LET GO (England)
Sean Nelis & Richard Madders
LET GO gets right to the point in the opening scene. Someone is packing a box with belongings from their desk. This is the beauty of short films! With only 9 minutes, a feature film must be created.
Sean Nells has written a great script. We feel the pain of being let go from work, the loneliness of sitting in the park before heading home. And then, on the elevator to his apartment, we see flash backs of what may happen when he opens the door and meets his Partner. Sean is not bashful, his wife could have won the lottery or even opened up to have a threesome! The elevator flashbacks are fun and priceless.
Then with so much happening, the ending catches us by surprise! Very well crafted and acted film.
