Morgan

A touching drama about mental health, heartbreak and loneliness.
4/5

Review

Written and directed by Travis Patten, ‘Morgan’ is a short drama film that delves into the loneliness and heartbreak of young woman as her life spirals out of control. Darcy Doyle leads the cast as the eponymous character, with Kristin Keith and Ashton Lewis in supporting roles. The poignant narrative unravels the protagonist’s fragile mental health following a breakup. Her pursuit of immediate comfort is unintentionally dismissed by her cliental, which leads Morgan down an isolated path of loss, fear and instability.

The 12-minute film, which is entirely set in one single day, opens with Marissa leaving Morgan’s home after their breakup. To distract her pain, Morgan journeys to her drug-taking cliental in the hope of finding solace in their company – but the friendship appears one-sided. After a mysterious note is place on her front door, Morgan takes refuge at her sisters home to deliberate her pain.

Travis Patten has created an emotional narrative that doesn’t shy away from unravelling the isolated existence within heartbreak. Darcy Doyle delivers a compelling performance that inhabits the authenticity of depression and loss. Visually, the film is well crafted with stellar cinematography, sound and post-production. The audience is certain to empathize and relate to the universal subject matter, which is certain to guarantee engagement. A touching tale that deserves high acclaim. Recommended viewing.
