Watch: Upper East Side Short Film 'Summer with Mrs. Von Mausch'
"Let's get outta here!" Friends make all the difference in the world. Summer with Mrs. Von Mausch is a short film written & directed by David Pomes that's finally available online via Vimeo. This premiered years ago but can now be seen below and it's an amusing 14 minute watch. Molly Learner stars as Summer, a 13-year-old girl whose father is ill-prepared for his daughter's New York City visit - and for her developing an unlikely friendship with his eccentric next-door neighbor, played by Annie McGreevey. "With humor and poignancy, Summer with Mrs. Von Mausch is a timely yet timeless tale of moving past loneliness and isolation, as two entirely different women bridge the generation gap and affirm their individuality." The performances are a bit rough, but the film does have a fun Ferris Bueller's Day Off vibe to it at least. Enjoy.
