Will Ferrell, William Jackson Harper, Fred Hechinger
Zach Woods, Brandon Gardner
A therapist (Will Ferrell) receives a dire call from one of his clients (Jackson Harper) that he immediately needs to address. As he is into his and his client’s session, the therapist is met with the consequences of neglecting his personal life for his career. ‘David’ directed by Zach Woods is a personal family drama wrapped in a 10-minute bow that is both bleak and funny at the same time.
Zach Woods does a really good job at building the tension from the first to the second half. One minute you are in an unfamiliar place in a somewhat black comedy, but once the second half kicks in you are completely aware of the characters motivations, fears, and the relationship between them. There is a lot of depth in the story that makes this short very raw and moving. This came out back in 2020 but I would check it out with this years Tribeca At home shorts program!
