What Was Lost (2014)

Joel had it all. A great job, a gorgeous wife, and the chance of finding a manuscript thought lost to time. But one day, everything changes in this 24-minute film from director Don Swanson, who also brought us A Wish for Giants.

One day, everything changes. His pursuit of the manuscript and ignoring of his wife finally pushes his wife into the arms of another man. I loved the honesty of this scene, with Joel just stunned that this is happening and discussing the proper making of bacon rather than attacking the man at first. I don’t to ruin what happens next, but he gets everything he wants back while losing everything at the same time.

Swanson’s directorial eye has improved since the last film of his that I watched, so that’s pretty exciting. He’s doing what he can with his budgets and that’s really all you can ask for.

You can check this out on Amazon Prime.
