Short Film recommendation: “Check Please!”
It’s a rarity when a film can make you see red with rage, but also make you laugh out loud and filmmaker Daniel Sorochkin has done just that with his latest romantic comedy.
A play on the implications of “Check please!” and true to its title, Sorochkin’s film is sure to cause you to want to hurry out of the restaurant – especially after the debacle that ensues. This worst case scenario comedy follows a botched marriage proposal wherein Ben plans to propose to his long time girlfriend, Laura, only to find out that his ring was mistakenly sent to the wrong table – and he can’t get it back.
