It is witty, cute, and well acted.

I did not realize it was a film short, until it was too late.

It is only 13 minutes long and is a total waste of time.

This is a really great short. It's only 12 minutes long so you can watch it any time to lift your spirits and see some great performances.

Update: I've noticed a lot of people are rating it lower just because they didn't have the insight to check the description before purchasing. This is a SHORT film. It says so clearly in the description. It is not a full feature. It's an excellent short film and well worth 1.99 If you want to spend a longer time watching you can get the collection of shorts this is from. This is one of several films in the DVD "Stars in Shorts" which is a series of short flicks like this with different well known actors. That one is also available on Amazon Instant Video.

This 12-minute film does a good job of portraying the uncertainty of making new friends through online venues, especially for those who lived most of their lives in an era where face-to-face encounters were the norm for potential dates. Judi Dench can do a whole lot in 12 minutes! With few words or actions she makes us feel exactly what it is like to try to get to know someone online enough not to be afraid to meet him in person. The only thing I didn't like about the short was the use of foul language. It wasn't necessary to the plot or the character development.

I loved this little video. Judi Dench is always on top of her game, especially when dealing with dating relationships of seniors. As a widowed senior myself, I could readily identify with her. Do buy this one, it is worth the $1.99 for this fun little film.

ending (Amazon Instant Video)
Here we are the 70's set, learning to use the computer, IM, computer lingo, and coming of age. This is a sharp short film featuring Dame Judi Dench and Tom Huddleston.

Sig others dead or gone, widows and widowers are looking for companionship in the new age. Computer wise finely, starting to date, and waiting for responses just like kids. Getting back into the dating game is a difficult process, and then you add the new digital age. This short film takes us through it. Dane Dench is perfect as the woman waiting for a response. Does she make the first move, does she wait? What is the rule in this new era? She has flushed out the past history of the man she is interested in, and we surmise he has done the same. Not receiving the response she wanted quickly enough, she decides to call the man, but is that forward? She hangs up, and soon the phone rings.

Relationships in the digital age. So well done!

This was wonderful. Approaching the dating scene in the social media age is both fun and frustrating. All this instant gratification (and lack thereof) gets us all acting like overexcited teenagers.

I bought this thinking that Tom Hiddleston played a somewhat major role. He does not he comes out in it for about 5sec. That being said I love Judi Dench and I found this to be quite delightful. For $1.99 I think I got my moneys worth
