A Good First Short for Brolin
9 March 2008 | by JustCuriositySee all my reviews

I saw Josh Brolin's short at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX. It is certainly a decent directorial debut for Brolin. The story is a simple one of a man who escapes from prison to find his daughter and bury his wife. It is a moving film that presents a powerful father-daughter relationship. This is particularly intriguing since Brolin his directing his own daughter in the short film. The filming and acting does a good job of developing the characters in the short period of about 16 minutes. The audience was really able to connect with the characters and the sense of place. The film is certainly a dark one that touches on love, family, and death. The ending is a little abrupt and overly melodramatic unfortunately. However, these could be resolved if Brolin develops the film into a feature which he suggested in the Q&A might be a possibility. The film certainly represents a good start for Brolin as a director.
