Face It

By Aditya Pawar with 7.2

drama · Short Films

A woman stands alone in a dimly-lit room saying lines of iconic scenes from iconic films in front of a mirror. A swipe of a makeup brush confirms that she's an actor, perhaps rehearsing before a scene. Soon, a crew member comes to tell her to get ready to give her shot, but will it be everything the viewer expected?

Face It, shouldered by its one-woman cast, borrows a few minutes from the life of an actor rehearsing all by herself. With a complete and deliberate absence of a background score, other actors and other paraphernalia, including any visible makeup on the protagonist's face, the film does run the danger of sagging a bit in the middle. However, the climax and the end, a bit predictable for the viewer by now, pulls it back together.
