Short Film: Silver Road
Blast from the past from one of my favorites short films. In “Silver Road,” lifelong friends Danny and Mark, both seventeen, struggle with the awkwardness of saying goodbye the night before Danny leaves for university in the city. Mark will stay behind to work his father’s farm, hoping someday to buy some land of his own. What will happen when Danny — who harbors a secret affection for his best friend, Mark — finally has the courage to act on his impulses? Canadian actors Andrew Hachey (dark-haired) and Jonathan Keltz give stellar performances in this accomplished heart-wrenching drama.
