“The same reason I married you … to kill time.”

Crazy Glue
She’s worried her husband is becoming a junk collector. When he turns up with a super glue bottle, his wife has to wonder why he must purchase one more useless item. Meet the couple: nameless and loveless, unhappily married, bored. As he begins to suspect an affair, she returns home one day to find him missing and everything else … well, firmly and permanently in place. Is it just her, or has the situation gotten sticky in here? Directed by Elizabeth Orne. Official Selection at the 2011 Telluride Film Festival and shortlisted for the 2011 Student Academy Award. Based on a short story by Etgar Keret (The Girl on the Fridge). Principal Cast: Katya Campbell and Will Brill (Not Fade Away).
