One Weekend A Month.
6 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I, too, saw this short film by Mr. Escobar. Albeit, I know nothing of filming or editing, I was immediately drawn to his choice of filming the scene in basically the same area, the kitchen. The raw emotions portrayed by Renee O'Connor are nothing short of amazing. One not only sensed her character's desperation but felt it as well. As a Latina, I am always more than pleased to see films done by other fellow Latinos. Kudos to you Mr. Escobar for your short, intense and real look in a day of a single Mom. As for Ms. O'Connor, why she isn't seen in more more "mainstream" roles is beyond me. I applaud her for courage in tackling the role of Meg. I certainly look forward to more of Mr. Escobar's films and Ms. O'Connor's acting.
