Has vibes of the Before Trilogy and a European romance film and I enjoy those types of movies and want more of them these days!

I knew nothing about this before so I really was…

    Ok now I am ok not being open to have this year’s Oscar Shorts because the amount of walk outs during Two Distant Strangers mid way would be too much to handle. Two old white people left once that one ended but I think they were more offended about what it had to say about cops not that it was a gratuitous exploitative short that I’m sure would be DEEPLY triggering for the right reasoning side of the crowd that…
