Broken Record Poster April

“Frasier & Tam can’t believe their luck when they stumble upon an old trunk full of old records during a house clearance. Have they hit the jackpot?”

… in 1 word:
Natural.

… in 10 words:
Don’t fix what’s not broken; that’s what they say, right?

… in 100 words:
Okay. So once again let’s set things straight. This isn’t a Hollywood blockbuster or a film reaping the rewards of a lucrative investment. It is what it is. A charming short that builds from its roots to create something that is charming in its simplicity. It may not have the drama or comedy to satisfy die-hard filmaholics but it doesn’t profess to be anything of the sort. It is well written for what it is and the naturalistic acting gives it a close to home feeling; though some may not be able to resonate with that, but that’s their loss.

Now go and watch it…
