The Phone Call
England
Heather is shy and spends her days working at a helpline call center. When she receives a call from a distraught man, she has no idea the encounter will change her life forever. Featuring an amazing performance by Sally Hawkins (who did this film right after her Oscar nominated performance in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine), the film will resonate with anyone searching for a true companion. The film won the 2015 Oscar for best short film. Written and directed by Mat Kirkby. Principal cast: Sally Hawkins and Jim Broadbent.
