Fran likes to think about dying. When she makes a guy in the office laugh, he wants more - a movie date, a slice of pie, a conversation. But if dating him means learning to live, she's pretty sure she can't do that.
Kate moves to a small coastal town for a bar-tending job, anticipating a summer of freedom. What she finds instead is less idyllic, and she comes to realize she's much more vulnerable than she thought.
The 24 Hours of Le Mans, 1955. 300.000 spectators are watching from the sidelines. It is 6:00 PM when Pierre Levegh's car ploughs into the spectator stands, scattering the crowd with his car engine's hot debris.
The premise is simple. That's a good start.
The simplicity is what makes this such an entertaining short. There is humor, there is terror, there is weirdness, there is so many things that come out in this short that other movies cannot convey in 2 hours. I was more entertained in 17 minutes and 16 seconds watching this than I was in the 3 plus hours "The Irishman" made me sit through.
In 17 minutes I uttered "WTF" several times, I chuckled, I stared in amazement, I guffawed, and I smiled in content.
Watch it. What do you have to lose?
