Nothing Special

Treat yourself with this award-winning short by Helena Brooks entitled Nothing Special. Nominated to the Cannes Film Festival, this 11-minuter short tells the story of Billy who becomed the reluctant subject of worship when his delusional mother decides that he is a Jesus reincarnate. It's a rare thing to be mesmerized by a single film, but that is exactly what happened upon watching Nothing Special. Kip Chapman is a delight to the title role, making us laugh and feel empathy in a natural manner. Heather the eccentric mom played by Alison Routledge adds a quirky flair to the film.
