Saturday Shorts: Guilty Pleasures
Rounding out this week, I managed to find a short (and I mean short) film about harboring a guilty pleasure. Without further adieu, I present 2011’s Guilty Pleasures:
Everyone has a vice: smoking, drinking, shopping, shoes, food, sex. Take your pick – the list is endless. Point is, each and every one of us has something in which we over-indulge. The extent to which we over-indulge is up to us, but for some, it becomes something that’s a part of us, something that we can’t help. Your loved ones have one of two options: accept it, or move on. I loved that in this one, the guy (as opposed to, say, a woman with a massive shoe collection) stayed true to something he loved, lamenting not the end of the relationship, but the missed sale. Really, you shouldn’t have to change huge parts of who you are to be in a relationship.
The music at the end didn’t hurt either. If you liked it, it’s by Madeleine Peyroux. Her version of “La Vie En Rose” is worth checking out as well.
Hope you enjoyed, and happy Saturday!
