That One Day is the second of two 2016 entries into fashion label Miu Miu's "Women's Tales" series where they hire directors and give them carte blanche to make a short film as long as the film features Miu Miu clothing. I've seen a number of these so-called "fashion shorts" and while they're all beautifully shot some directors work better in the medium than others. I think That One Day is perhaps my favourite, because it's beautiful but conventionally structured.
The film follows teenage Rachelle (Rachelle Vinberg), a newbie skateboarder who heads to a skate park only to find herself feeling intimidated by the more experienced boys that tease her and roll around the park like they own it. The magic happens when she's defended by a group of brash skater girls who she quickly bonds with. There's a quasi-magical element to the movie but it all works well together and Moselle presents us with a beautiful little snapshot of teenage girldom.
Worth the watch.
