A political drama that explores sexual misconduct allegations.
4/5

Review

Written and directed by Yuval Shrem, ‘Invisible Lines’ is a short drama film that delves into the #MeToo Movement, unravelling the professional and personal consequences of a sexual misconduct allegation. Ron Gilbert leads the cast as Dan Palmer, a state Governor on track to securing a healthy political re-election. Buoyancy is hastily interrupted when Palmer is publicly embroiled in 3 sexual assault cases. The film tackle’s themes of abuse, family and guilt, whilst highlighting the changing landscape of society, public life and mainstream media.

The 26-minute film opens with Governor Dan Palmer (state omitted) pledging to his supporters at a re-election rally. With a seemingly robust approval rating and a certain win ahead, Palmer’s celebratory dinner at home is dampened when the evening news reports of his alleged impropriety. The poignant drama, set entirely in one evening, explores his political fall from grace and the ripple effect it has on his wife and adult sons. A sobering watch with a chilling narrative that echoes recent events within public notoriety.

Yuval Shrem has delivered a captivating drama that initially rewards viewers with a behind-the-scene glimpse on the political campaign trail. The light tone of the short abruptly shifts, setting the motion for a rigid conclusion – which is certain to keep viewers engaged. High praise to Ron Gilbert (Dan Palmer) – his complex portrayal of the flawed character will equally bring empathy and abomination. Cinematography, production design, sound and editing are of an exemplary standard. A thrilling watch from start-to-finish. Highly recommended.

Brief Synopsis

A Governor on his reelection campaign is faced with allegations of sexual misconduct that come up against him just days before the elections, turning his and his family’s lives upside down.
