Brooklyn Burial

A young woman grapples with her heartbreak through a symbolic gesture.
3/5

Review

Christine Stoddard’s short drama delves into the poignant journey of a young woman grappling with heartbreak and the desire to move forward. Stoddard herself leads the cast, portraying the central character who returns to the cemetery alongside her best friend, played by Disnie Sebastien, to confront the emotional remnants of her past engagement.

Set against the backdrop of the exact spot where her ex-boyfriend proposed, the film takes a spiritual turn as the protagonist attempts to bury the engagement ring, offering a metaphorical act of closure. Despite its low-budget production, the film stands out for its well-written narrative and respectable performances, creating a poetic exploration of healing and moving on that resonates with many.

Sherwood Buckley’s cinematography, while reasonable, doesn’t quite achieve a cinematic quality, and the sound could benefit from improvement. Nevertheless, Stoddard’s film succeeds in conveying a relatable and emotionally charged story, tapping into the universal theme of finding closure after heartbreak.
