Firecracker

Firecracker is a fifteen-minute fiction directed by Jonathan K Harris. It was released on 30th January 2017. The main actors are Alfie Stewart as Charlie and Anton Saunders as Lee.

The story is breathtaking because the actors communicate strong feelings and emotions. The relationship between the father and his son was really realistic and intense.

Their faces expressions were well played, that is why the plot is very convincing.

The film deals with a racing competition but it also about a complicated relation between the father and his son. There are a lot of contrasts between a son full of ambition and a father who, in his youth, had the same personality. The script was excellent. The most striking scene is the driving during the race, it was really intense and we were worried for him. This short film shows that the family is more important than the pride of winning. It made us feel touched by the story and it made us think about our relation with our family.

   We would recommend to people who are emotional. It’s a great piece of film-making.
