The standout in this collection of short films made in the East of England is "Sunny Boy", the tale of a teenager with a rare skin condition, which is sympathetically directed and allows the lead actor's charisma to shine. "Where There's Smoke" is a well-acted exploration of a relationship breakdown amidst gorgeous vistas of the Suffolk coast, but as someone who has struggled with infertility I was irked by how it excused the husband's irresponsible behaviour. Then again, I'm just writing a review rather than actually making a short film. Maybe I should put my money where my mouth is...
