Do you roll your eyes at true love’s kiss? Do Nicholas Sparks adaptations make you cringe? Refuse to watch The Titanic? Or refuse to admit that you have?
If you answered yes to any of the above…these short films are for you:
APRICOT by Ben Briand.
What does it feel like to be in love? It feels like a dimly lit coffee shop. Shadows and sunspots. Magic tricks. Birthday parties. Tinsel. It makes you scribble notes from conversations so you don’t forget. It tastes like apricots. It turns you into an obsessive creeper.
CASINO MOON by Gia Coppola
Back in the early 2000’s Robert played Anne Hathaway’s lover boy, Michael, in The Princess Diaries. Mia fantasized about sitting in his garage, crashing his band practice. In real life, Robert fronts the band Rooney. The dreamy background song in Casino Moon is actually from his solo album Double Capricorn. If you don’t have 14 minutes to spare, check out the 3 minute music video, which uses splices of the Coppola film.
