It has been a fantastic week covering the Nashville Film Festival, and after watching a ton of short films, documentaries, and feature films, I am here to award the Best Short Film of the Festival.
An existential comedy about the mother of two young children who begins to spontaneously vomit toy blocks.
Blocks is HILARIOUS. It was different, unique, and any parents that would watch this would laugh a lot. Moloney’s writing is fine-tuned and quite hilarious. She took what traumatizes all parents and made it into a funny little short.
I laughed out loud several times throughout, especially during the “sex scene,” and Eric said to Ashleigh, “Wanna roll the dice (about cumming inside her), and she said, “no, we were just talking about Global warming. We’re not having another baby.”
Clarie Coffee is PERFECT in the role of Ashleigh. She’s relatable, she is charming, and she is an absolute delight from start to finish in this quirky but yet perfect role.
Blocks is relatable, charming, and downright hilarious!
