Short Film: Beauty by Joyce Sherri

Its always awesome when people see a black character in a period film/series and send me a link. This exact thing happened this morning when I was meet with a tweet from Evangeline Holland (author of wonderful Edwardian & WWI romantic historical fiction)!

Thanks Evangeline, You're Awesome!

Synopsis
Set in 1930s, a black woman with mysterious abilities interviews to be the housekeeper to an eccentric white widow, but in order to get the job she must use her abilities in a way she didn't intend.


Short Review
I went into the short expecting suspense and that is exactly what was delivered. The music, atmosphere, lighting, and acting all left me eagerly curious of what was to come next. The Twist was awesome. I'm not going to hint at it because I want you all to be surprised like I was. The costumes, decor as well as the hair and makeup all aligned with the 1930s setting. Awesome job to all involved!

This would make for an amazing feature length film. I want it. *grabby hands*
