Retreat from reality
14 September 2006 | by johno-21See all my reviews

I saw this at the 2006 Palm Springs International Festival of Short films and was impressed with the stylish look of this short film and the acting. Only two on screen roles here in the real life couple of Courtney Ford and Brandon Routh. Routh of course has recently gained fame as the new movie Superman. Here he plays a man who doesn't see that his relationship with his live-in girlfriend is falling apart as she tries to reach out to him to get things back to where they once were in their romance. He breaks out of his denial stage and briefly starts piecing things together. This is a dark drama and comes from the debut of director/writer/editor Joel Kelly. Knowing nothing about Kelly you have to wonder if this story was something that happened in real life to someone he knew. Great acting performances from Routh and Ford but for a 15 minute short it tackles to big of possible longer storyline with not enough character development. This could have still remained a short but I felt it would have worked better for me at maybe 10 minutes more to learn a little more of these characters and their romance. Nice cinematography from Masanobu Tkayanagi and sound from Brett Hinton and Mark Aragon. Terrific job of editing by filmmaker Kelly. Ford produced this along with her step brother Roberto Orci and television veteran Hal Sparks. I would give this an 8.0 out of 10.
