| Packs a lot into 19 minutes!
I had been wanting to see this short film for a long time, and finally got the opportunity. I was expecting it to be good, but did not anticipate how moving it would be! The cast is uniformly excellent--very believable, and great chemistry between everyone, with Sean Dugan as an excellent lead and Joanna Adler convincing as his romantically challenged, heart-of-gold childhood friend. Director Carl Byrd and scriptwriter Peter Macklin made this 19-minute film feel like a fast-moving and compelling 109-minute feature film, in addition to keeping things funny at the right times. I can see why "Dinner at 40" has been sweeping the film festival awards.
