CINEQUEST FILM FESTIVAL 2023 REVIEW! The short film is an unmixed pleasure. You can watch 15-20 visions of cinema, all in the space of 2 hours. With director Jessica Liu and writer Anat Eshel’s Tomorrow, we witness a screwball comedy version of such visual pleasure.

Joanne (Lowam Ayasu) has reservations concerning her on-again, off-again relationship with Brad (Emilio Garcia-Sanchez). While the sex is wonderful and wild, Brad has great issues committing to a single woman. Then there’s a twist, which I shall not spoil here. Suffice it to say, the 5 minutes you will spend considering Brad and Joanne’s relationship is utterly delightful.

I had such a blast with this short. Credit must be granted to Eshel. This is the sort of film that requires a beautifully written screenplay that hits the point and is effective in its quirkiness. The script does it all wonderfully well. Liu directs very capably, and I would love to see an Eshel-written, Liu-directed screwball fantasy feature happen.

Tomorrow is a whimsically bonkers sort of short film. It’s got a great punchline and is worth the 5-minute runtime.

Tomorrow screened at 2023 Cinequest Film Festival.
