Marry Me

2008 | Drama | Short Film


Marry Me is the story of a little girl who likes a little boy, and a little boy who likes his bike. "Marry Me" is a short film based on the experiences of the filmaker, Michelle Lehman, while growing up, a very sweet film about childhood. The teaser caption for the film describes it as a story about "a little girl who likes a little boy who likes his BMX bike". The premise reinforces gender stereotypes, but a solid "kick of girl power" at the end solidifies the contemporary feel. Even so, it is the purity, and irony of the premise - the girl chases the disinterested boy - that brings a smile to one's face, especially that in 10 years those roles will be switched and he'll be kicking himself.
