|Molly C. Quinn|
Molly C. Quinn played Alexis C. Castle on "Castle," but that's not all she does. Here is a short film that she did with director Francesco Calabrese called "The Shift." It is filmed in a retro style that is fairly convincing, but for the fact that kitchens back then weren't nearly as spacious as theirs is, especially in such a small house.
I know, I'm such a nitpicker. But they did get the phone right. So there's that. And they probably had a budget of about $5, so I'm really just saying this tongue in cheek.
Overall, a great job. Nice to see that Quinn enjoys doing these shorts which test her acting chops just a tiny bit. However, be forewarned, it is kind of weird. Some good acting, pretty enjoyable and kinda weird.
I wish this were a lot longer - best recommendation you'll ever hear from me. I'm thinking that is what they want to have happen. We shall see.
Put it in the widest screen you can.

1964. An ordinary day turns out to be anything but, when Joe comes home to find out that his wife Betty hasn't been cooking dinner. And there's a very good reason for that.
