TAKE ME HOME (2023) Sundance 2023


Young woman with cognitive issues calls her sister when their mother is non-responsive.

This short film is a killer drama about the problem of not being able to be communicate when things happen. Never feeling forced or contrived this is a film that feels as though it was ripped from life. Indeed Jeena Yi, Director Liz Sargent's sister has the very problems we see on screen.

This is a small gem of the film. It is a film that has gotten better in the days since I saw it. It's so good that I honestly want more time with these characters. I would love to see this expanded, or if not I would love to see something else with them.

Finding films like this are the reason that I love to wade into short film collections.

Highly recommended.
