The performances in tandem with the writing take most of these seven movies to interesting places.

Its most consistent pleasures derive more from its performances than from storytelling.

Audience Reviews for Stars In Shorts

While all of the shorts have something to offer, the standout is clearly Robert Festinger's The Procession. Brilliantly directed with superb acting, the film will leave you wishing it was a full length feature. For those fortunate enough to see it, The Procession will be the best 12 minutes of your day.
