A Date To Remember (Short Film Thoughts: The One You Never Forget)

So I thought to myself, eight minutes watching it will probably not kill me. Well, it kid of did. It killed my heart right that very second and it ripped it to shreds and before I knew it, there I am in the middle of mu living room in tears. Basically, it’s about a young boy going to the prom, and his parents are all excited for him. The mom wants some info and has been pestering the young boy but he is tight-lipped. When the date arrives later on, it is only his father who is there, but the boy rushes to go to the car as he didn’t want to have his date come in. When the father looks out, he sees his son is with another boy. What happens next is heartwarming and so very cute. I am heartened to find these kinds of movies exist, as durign my days the thought of this would send everyone reeling. But, progress can still make good art, and this one I will cherish…
