US is a dramatic short film written/directed by Will Darbyshire starring Lucinda Dryzek and Laurence Ubong Williams.
“On the journey to the airport, a young couple lock horns over the differing views of their tumultuous relationship. What transpires is a conversation about distance, commitment and the uncertain future ahead. “US” puts us right in the centre of that heartbreaking moment when they are forced to confront the unknown future of their long-distance love”
This is an intimate examination of the strains of a long-distance relationship and especially the pain of parting with a loved one for an extended time. It also touches on the struggles of a real-life relationship and people’s differing priorities for life. This plays as a two hander; with Dryzek offering the stand-out performance of the pair as the emotion-driven Sam playing against the more restrained John. This narrative carries well for it’s short run time and as this was based on a book there may be some potential for a feature adaption.
It is well shot and accompanied by subtle scoring from Tom Rosenthal.
