Two shorts in Oscar contention: MARRIAGE MATERIAL and MALOU
Musical short subject about a woman who goes to a place to teach her to become more marriageable after her current relationship implodes.
Bouyantly up beat music hides the fact that this is dark little confection that will break your heart. It’s a dark tale of selling your soul to fit in and the misery that results.
Currently in the mix for a possible Oscar it is definitely good enough, the question is will the committee making up the short list be able to get the taste of ashes out of their mouths.
Sweet little film about a dancer with and artificial leg getting a chance to audition for a prestigious company.
Certain to put a smile on your face, this little gem is in the Oscar mix. While I am not sure it will make the final cut, the film hopefully will have a long life where it’s message about how sometime perceived limitations aren’t needs to be seen by those with handicaps.
