'STARS': Four Stars (Out of Five)
An 8-minute dramatic short film, written and directed by first time filmmaker Krista Vernoff (who has a lot of experience writing and producing television shows, and TV movies). The short stars Abigail Spencer, Wes Brown, Madeleine McGraw, Jeanine Mason and Josh Kelly. It tells the story of a mentally disturbed mother (Spencer), that makes a horrible decision regarding her daughter; due to disturbing memories from her own childhood (involving abuse). The film is beautifully shot and structured; I think Vernoff makes a brilliant directorial debut here. Spencer is also outstanding in the lead role (and stunningly beautiful, like always). The short is very disturbing, shocking and depressing; and I like all of those things in film, if it's done right. It works here, because of the carefully constructed backstory. I really like the way this short plays out.
