Jo attempts to keep her daughter on track despite her growing independence. This student short from London, England is a naturalistic drama about a frustrated mom and coach trying to project athletic aspirations and control over her daughter. Director Ben Hector gets wonderful performances from Emma Keele and Fabienne Piolini-Castle as the quarreling pair, their push-pull tension captured with unshowy accuracy and insight. Rosie’s drooping motivation to excel at Badminton seems to stem from a burgeoning interest in spending time with a male classmate, and while Rosie’s father (divorced from Jo) isn’t alarmed, classifying his daughter’s new relationship as a normal part of growing up, Jo sees it as a pressing issue that needs to be rectified. Provoked by struggles at work and issues with her own past, she eventually intervenes in drastic fashion. [Watch on YouTube]. (13 minutes). Written & Directed by Ben Hector. Produced by Ellie Gocher.
