CGiii Comment

The very thought of a father buying his son time with a hooker is utterly abhorrent.

And, in this vastly superior short film, the subject is approached with such maturity and tenderness that you will appreciate it with a surprising smile.

The Hollywood connections are pretty vast - Landon and Gilbert - born into the business and it shows - Gilbert is spectacular at down-playing the hooker and the writing is steady and controlled.

A fine example of short film-making.
