Apples, Oranges, Lemons & Limes

An endearing tale of young love, social anxiety and friendship.
4/5

Review

Pat Mitchell’s romantic drama is a tender coming of age story that explores the awkward, uncharted terrain of young love in a simple yet authentic way. The film follows the story of Henry, a socially anxious young man who attempts to connect with his crush from middle school at a house party. Calvin Waldau delivers a powerful performance as the uncertain Henry, masterfully capturing the character’s inner turmoil and charisma as he courts the object of his affection, Natalie, played beautifully by Skye Marie Sena.

The ensemble cast is fantastic throughout, with each member bringing a unique dynamic to the film’s story. The cinematography, sound and editing are all top-notch, expertly highlighting the growing connection between the two leads.

As the tale progresses, it becomes clear that this is not your typical love story – it is a nuanced and refreshing portrayal of the messy, complicated nature of young love. The film packs an emotional punch that will undoubtedly resonate with viewers of all ages.

In summary, Pat Mitchell’s romantic drama is a beautifully crafted short film that delivers a charming and tender tale of youthful passion. With great acting and excellent production values, this coming of age story speaks to anyone who has experienced the thrills and confusion of young love. Highly recommended.
