Watch: Zany Coming-of-Age Comedy Short 'Foureyes' with Jake Ryan
"They are going to bring everything into focus." The perfect short to start your week, take a look at Foureyes, written and directed by Conor Byrne. This hilarious and charming independent comedy short stars young actor Jake Ryan, seen in Inside Llewyn Davis and Moonrise Kingdom, as Bobby Bowersox - a 10-year-old boy who learns it's time for him to get glasses. The story turns into a zany, sexual coming-of-age from there and it's quite fun, with a cast that gives excellent performances in just 12 minutes. This might not be totally safe for work, but oh well, it's harmless fun and worth watching. This is how to make a great short.

Glasses are at a critical mass in terms of coolness.
