solid short
26 June 2006 | by (Astoria, NY) – See all my reviews

It's tough to make a good short film. Even the ones that I have seen with famous actors and done by famous directors can often be horrible. GNOME, however, is quite a pleasant surprise. Lauren Graham (the one and only) takes her role and knocks it out of the park. Playing a less spunky, more upper class version of Lorelai Gilmore, she radiates from start to finish. Her expressions are priceless, and she provides a prime example of why good actors make or break movies. Written and directed Jenny Burke (an acclaimed TV writer from her filmography), the story is guided with a beautiful simplicity that a lot of film students/aspiring Micheal Bays tend to lack. In fact, the movie reminds me of something Hal Ashby would have done if he had ever been infused with a SEX IN THE CITY-suburban brain chip.
