Coming out fantasy with a classical bent...
4 December 2003 | by Havan_IronOakSee all my reviews

A young Irish man contemplates coming out to his lower middle class family and considers what it it would be like. If only they were a bit more like those families he sees on the televised Shakespeare classics...

This is a well made short with a clever concept, well put together and perfectly paced. It's well worth the 8 minutes that it takes to watch it.

This film shows what can be done, even in a short time, by those that know their craft. Bravo!
