Strong directorial debut for Aniston/Buchanan
30 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this at the 2007 Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films where it received an enthusiastic response from the audience at my screening. This is the story of ER nurse Frannie (Robin Wright Penn) who, besides the stress of being an emergency room nurse, is going through a difficult time in her marriage and in trying to quit smoking is now hooked on nicotine gum and nicotine patches. In her shift at work she encounters a psych patient (Bonita Friedericy) who because of her frequent visits to the ER without any apparent medical problems is left unattended and forgotten. Frannie also encounters Howard Davis (Kris Kristofferson) who is in a bedside vigil for his wife of 45 years as she lies comatose. Jennifer Aniston and Andrea Buchanan make their directorial debut in co-directing this short. Buchanan also wrote the screenplay. This is produced by Glamour Magazine's Short Film Series and was inspired by a true story by magazine reader Colleen Goldrick. Veteran cinematographer James Glennon photographed this film just before his unexpected death from complications from prostate surgery. Trish Fuller edits. This is a good story and film and I would give it an 8.0 out of 10.
