Short Film: “Happily Ever After”
This award-winning animated short film, which debuted late last year, is every couple’s worst nightmare. In six minutes, animators Yonni Aroussi and Ben Genislaw manage to deconstruct the deterioration of a relationship. From screaming babies to male pattern baldness, every preconceived fear young couples have about their impending future is here. But the film manages to avoid complete pessimism by leaving the ending open. Is this a film about the dangers of getting old, or is this a film about how the inevitable hardships of life are a worthwhile investment? Either way, it’s a cute film. Watch it.
