4.0 out of 5 stars Standout short films, 26 Nov 2013

This review is from: Boys on Film: Youth in Trouble [DVD] (DVD)
This set starts off with "Deep End", my pick of the bunch. The story about coming out to a younger brother is a bit of a twist to the usual coming out story. It only runs for about 11 minutes but the great acting and production grabbed me.
The last is "Prora", a touching story of two mates who pushed the boundaries of what mates should do, excellent locations and cinematography make this a stand out.
"The Wilding" set in a juvenile prison, is very real, excellent cast with moving performances while "It's not a cowboy movie" is about how classmates talk about "Brokeback Mountain" that screened on TV the night before. Excellent dialogue makes this one very enjoyable to watch.
On the down side "Family Affair" is more about cigarette smoking than anything else, for me, the "Dud" of the set.
There are some really good short films here, worth a look.
