Love Lessons

A gripping psychodrama as heartbreak drives a man’s pursuit of revenge.
5/5

Review

‘Love Lessons’ directed by Andrew M. McGivern, is a gripping short film that seamlessly weaves elements of romance and thriller into a compelling narrative. Donald Wayne Brown Jr delivers a powerful performance as Trey, a heartbroken man on a psychopathic quest for revenge after discovering his girlfriend’s infidelity. The tension builds as he takes her captive in a basement, setting the stage for a Shakespearian-style tale of betrayal, jealousy, and revenge.

Jonathan Medina’s portrayal of Dirk, Trey’s confidante, adds a surprising and tender romantic edge to the story, creating a dynamic that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. The chemistry between the actors is palpable, enhancing the emotional depth of the film.

The technical aspects of the production are commendable, with spectacular lighting and production design contributing to the film’s overall atmosphere. Zach Zombek’s cinematography is skillfully executed, capturing each frame with precision and adding to the overall immersive experience.

‘Love Lessons’ stands out not only for its incredible acting but also for its unexpected twists and turns. McGivern skillfully navigates the complexities of the narrative, delivering a neat thriller that keeps the audience engaged from start to finish. This short film is a testament to the creativity and talent of its cast and crew, making it a worthwhile watch for fans of romance-infused thrillers.
