Choosing a short film is a bit like matching wine & food: if well paired to the mood, can save your day (or dinner). That’s exactly what happened to me when I bumped into The Cub, a Sundance-selected short film by Riley Stearns: its full-bodied texture with mild sarcastic notes, hints of blood and other primordial flavours counterbalanced, to perfection, a tedious aftertaste of Christmassy goodness kindness gentleness & Co. Same for you, and enjoy!
Original synopsis: “Wolves make the best parents”.
