Although the person who wrote the previous comment seems to fixate on what he (or she) deems a one-dimensional plot (whatever that means), and the fact that it's length is only half-an-hour, I feel that this short film is that rare breed-a near perfect adaptation of its source material. The Olden Days Coat is a story about family and looking back. It's an old fashioned story told in an economical way with wonderful acting and beautiful writing. How anyone can possibly mention this gentle film in the same breath as Back to the Future is simply wrong. There is no comparison. If ever you have the opportunity, do yourself a favor and see this. It's a holiday story with a heart-something we could use more of these days.
