SFW Review: Real Talk

After watching Real Talk, it is easy to sympathize with the victim. She calls out her abuser live on television, and you would expect that he would have been ridiculed, but he slithers his way out of the accusations with ease.

He charms the host with a tale of woe; he captivates the audience with his smile and a false sense of innocence, to the point that you start to wonder why we have “justice” at all.

You see how the scenario plays out, and it was only for publicity, an intriguing story to sell to a waiting audience. Nothing was truly ever going to change on this show, and nothing did.

You can watch Real Talk on Short Film Wednesdays or check out other films by Short of the Week on their YouTube channel.
