| Stunning Short!
This short from first time Director/Writer Joel Kelly keeps playing in my head over and again. I was excited to have caught this as part of the wonderful shorts series at the recent CineVegas Film Festival.

Kelly's eye for using the camera to "speak" like characters aids this visual masterpiece. His choice of co-stars Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford doesn't let anything about the truth of lost love slip by. These two command one's attention beautifully. They carve a real picture into the pain and trials that unforgotten memories evoke.

I left the theatre with tears on my face, struck by the understanding of the plight of these characters coupled with a desire to know more about them, their history, their struggle, and especially what becomes of them. Personally this film touched a vain in my own life in a profound way. I look forward to Kelly using his gift of writing to continue to develop such future characters and give us a feature length look at his talents as a Director of emotionally riveting aspects of living. To feel pain is to feel alive, and this he has captured eloquently in such short time.

Don't deny yourself the opportunity to see this poignant film-in fact, find a Festival and go out of your way to see it. For a first film, I say we should all be on the lookout for more from Joel Kelly!
