Painful to watch, unfortunate truth
26 September 2018 | by panthergrl23See all my reviews

People in movies are expected to fit in an impossible box of perfection. These expectations hemorrhage into real life. This short film nails the reality of how people are treated. It isn't meant to be funny in a traditional sense, any humor is in the reality of the ridiculousness. It's intended to be eye opening and to show in a simplistic manner what happens behind scenes. It hits home for any job interview whether it be for a role in a film or a business professional.
