Quick Flick Review: “Faithful” needed less Histrionics, more Subtlety

Faithful is a psychological thriller about a woman named Lauren who’s struggling in her relationship with a cheating husband.

I often have the opportunity to review short films by aspiring Directors. By nature the budgets are minimal and the scripts spare. Still, the end result varies widely in terms of quality. The new short “Faithful” falls somewhere in the middle of the spectrum.
