Consignment (2013) – By Brian Morton

Consignment is defined as ‘placing a person or thing in the possession of another but retaining ownership’. That’s the basis of a short from filmmaker Justin Hannah called….well….Consignment.

This is the story of a young woman who’s been left by the man she loves. As she’s shopping one morning, she sees a jewelry box and is told that it holds a curse. It will bring back a love, but the consequences might be high. This leads to a tale of someone who’s used the box and what that did to them, and to second thoughts (maybe) from the woman who’s shopping.

Consignment will make you think back on all the people who you’ve either broken up with or who have broken up with you and what you might have done in that moment to get them back…or they you. It makes you realize that time does heal all wounds and that decisions made in that moment might not be right…or healthy!

I’m giving Consignment 3 out of 4 cigars, it’s an odd short and might not be for everyone, but it’s a great story that will make you think about your past! You can find out more over at http://www.manicbaby.com.
