GINA, AN ACTRESS, AGE 29


This short feels as natural and unaffected as any short film I've seen -- the performances, the mise en scene, the direction -- they all work together to serve the simple, rewarding story. Gina, a new actress, finds herself in an ethically shady pay-the-bills gig, and then needs to find a way to retain her own sense of truth.

++++1/2

This Sundance short, by Paul Harrill, is available now at the Auteurs.
