Perfectly executed concept, good acting and well directed short film!
It was supposed to be an amazing gift for wedding anniversary. But it ended up as s huge surprise. And a seductive new level of romance. Nikki Amuka-Bird (Avenue 5) and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead) play a couple who decide to celebrate their 20th anniversary by doing experiment with virtual reality glasses.
What could possibly go wrong when re-awakening for a couple becomes the unearthing of their deepest secrets?
The cast bring a lot to the film - particularly Amuka-Bird and Vinall. There were tender individual moments with them and together. However I struggled that the same wasn't happening from the start because there were things I didn't buy which did then limit how much I was invested in the characters.
