Carried along by a sharp script and great performances in the leads. David P.B. Stephens and Oise Ohiwerei shine as father and son. They sell the relationship perfectly with the result the film becomes something more than a story about a fixer but also a father and a son and the family business.
As with many shorts I’ve been seeing lately I’m wondering if this is a kind of proof of concept film for a feature. If so I would be interested in seeing where it would go. There are certainly enough threads here to make me believe that it would work.
Regardless, as a short film on it’s own terms Solutions is more than just a show reel for something longer and is a nifty story worth tracking down.
