Penny Dreadful

Columbia University / 2012 / 17 minutes / English / Color

“You said we were getting hamburgers.”

Watch the film:

Poor Dennis. With a pregnant girlfriend increasingly nervous about their financial state of affairs and a volatile criminal mastermind for a boss, Dennis is definitely feeling the heat from all sides to make the job work. For all intents and purposes, the master plan is clear and simple enough: abduct nine-year old Penny, drag her to the desert and squeeze the father for the ransom. What could go wrong? It’s a piece of cake.

Oh, there’s one small detail. Have we mentioned that Penny wants a milkshake?

Written and directed by Shane Atkinson. Principal cast: Oona Laurence, David Stevens, Marnie Schulenburg, Rick Zahn and Richard D. Busser.
