Watch: Take a Vow of Silence with Peter Molesworth's Short Film 'Fix'
"Ready for this? Three, two…" Time for a silent detox. Fix is a short film made by actor / filmmaker Peter Molesworth, and it's only 10 minutes long. The short follows two sisters, Willa & Lanie, who take a vow of silence as they detox Willa's boyfriend Daniel from alcoholism. Written & directed by Peter Molesworth, the film stars Brigette Lundy-Paine and Annie Young as the two sisters, along with Peter Molesworth as the boyfriend. It's much more moving and meaningful than you might be expecting, thanks to some lovely cinematography throughout, and the power of silence. Could you go for eight days without speaking? Can that actually change someone for the better? Give this film a quick look and let us know what you make of it.
