Actor Danny Morgan turns his hand to directing with this 10-minute short that sees a young couple try to reignite their sex life after the birth of their baby.
Esther Smith (Cuckoo) and Brett Goldstein (Doctor Who) play the couple with charm and sincerity as they navigate through a night of sex, spats and Tixylix.
Helen Simmons’ frank and funny script delights with wit, warmth, and an authenticity that will feel frighteningly familiar to anyone that’s been in a relationship for more than six months. Meanwhile, Morgan makes the most of a single set with a cinematic eye for framing and focus.
As succinct and to-the-point as its title suggests, Fuck is a confident debut short film that promises a budding career in features for both writer and director.
