“And Then She Kissed Me” goes from a homecoming dance to us navigating a relationship between two girls, with hopes that they’ll last forever.
Delivers What You’d Want Out Of A Short
The purpose of any short is to present what a writer/director can do and act almost as a reel. “This is what I’m about, this is my style, finance this or other future productions,” and Khodanian does that. While we only caught the name of Daniella, whether animated or live-action, there is no denying that this is a story worth seeing fleshed out. It’s cute, simple, lacks drama – beyond whether the other person may feel the same, and makes you swoon.
Rating: Positive (Worth Seeing) – Recommended
