“I’m not doing too well, mum.” Another outstanding short film to watch. Sometimes it’s the moments you least expect when you are suddenly forced to reflect on your life choices. This short Forever After, made by writer/director Charlotte Scott-Wilson, follows a woman who wakes up after a drunken one-night stand and must take the dread “walk of shame” back home. Along the way she begins to feel the heavy emotions of reality, and has many moments of reflection that make her start questioning what she’s doing. I really like this short, it’s meaningful and makes you think about your own life, while keeping our attention throughout.
