Audience Choice
1 July 2019 | by thelogfirecabinSee all my reviews

This short film won a well deserved audience choice award at the Plymouth Rebel Film Festival 2019, and was a delight. Focusing in on a modern domestic setting at the start, the camera then transports us seamlessly into a dream world, a la Mary Poppins. But it's done with a fun dig at pill-popping culture, which induced belly laughs from the audience in Plymouth. Rachel, our protagonist, is looking for a peaceful place which will rid her of her insecurities. However, after using chemistry to arrive at her dream world, what she later discovers is only herself. And that's the best thing she could have found.

I expect more excellent work to come from this budding director/screenwriter/producer. I would have rated this 10/10, were it not for some unnecessary crudity in the opening sequence that neither drove the narrative, nor seemed otherwise consistent with the tone of this joyous piece.
