"Earrings" Has Finally Arrived

Catherine Warner in Alex Withrow's Earrings (2012)

After working on it for the past year, Alex of And So It Begins... has premiered the first entry of his passion project - a short film entitled Earrings. I don't think I could, in good conscience, review the film because it's much more than that. It's the culmination of a fellow blogger's efforts to create something visual, something more than a blog post. You can read about Alex's journey here.

I will say, I think the film succeeds on so many levels. The visuals are inspired, the performances natural, the music haunting, and the mood wonderfully restrained. That's not a full review, but, again, it isn't intended to be. Call it a hearty recommendation from one blogger to another.

If you want to see the film, click here or here. Happy watching, and congratulations Alex!

  3. Josh, thanks for all of your kind words, both here and throughout this process.

    I can't thank you (and Chris and Sam) enough for spreading the word on the movie. You guys rock.
