Pink Grapefruit Short

"I'm excited to be forced to get to know you." From filmmaker Michael Mohan comes a charming short film about romance and relationships titled Pink Grapefruit, starring Wendy McColm who goes on a blind date that doesn't go as planned at first. The cast includes Nora Kirkpatrick and Matt Peters, plus Nathan Stewart-Jarrett. It's an interesting twist on the typical idea of a romance or even a blind date, and it works well as a refreshing short film that makes you think about relationships and how everything is supposed to work can be different. Watch out - it is NSFW so wait until you're home. But it's a great short.

Pink Grapefruit

A young married couple brings two of their single friends out to Palm Springs for a long weekend. It does not go as planned. The short premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and also played at SXSW. Pink Grapefruit is directed by filmmaker Michael Mohan (follow @michaelmohan), from a script co-written by Chris Levitus & Michael Mohan. From the New Yorker, Mohan says of the short: "We want to show how our past relationships shape the person we ultimately become." Adding that "you should probably wait until you get home to watch it so nobody in your immediate vicinity thinks you're a creep." Thoughts?

I must of missed something. The blind date couple was dry and not charismatic. I saw no romance? Thumbs down.

Interesting? Maybe. I guess it was just not my cuppa tea.

Couldn't make it. Bored 2 minutes in.

Intimate, titilating close-ups contrast the vast emptiness of the Palm Springs setting. I enjoyed this short meditation on modern romance.
