Serious Jest: (Time Filler) Compelling plot, captivating story, good non-verbal acting, a complimentary-but-not-distracting score, and a focused point…this film checked a bunch of the boxes for a good short film. I gave it 3 very full mugs, because if you choose to watch it, you will feel your 6 minutes were well spent; however, I wouldn’t say it’s a must-see, either; the plot is not that unique. The film is well done, though.
