Query (2020) Tribeca 2020

With the Tribeca Film Festival, like most other festivals this year, in an uncertain position, I've been asked to look at and review some shorts that were scheduled to play the fest. QUERY is the first.

Two male friends discuss sexual orientation and norms.

An intriguing discussion of sexuality is the reason to see this solid little short.  Delving into historical norms and bringing it up to today in a perfectly conversational way co-writer and director Sophie Kargman has made a film that makes you think about hat you feel.

The film is beautifully acted by Justice Smith and Graham Patrick Martin, who have an ease together that makes everything said and done feel perfectly natural.

The film is a quiet stunner and I'd like to see what Kargman does next.
