PBS Film School Shorts: Glory Days

This film really succeeded in stressing me out.

My issue was with the sheer amount of irresponsibility on the father’s part. He leaves his young children standing in the middle of a crowded room of intoxicated people so that he can flirt. He lets his friend carry him down a path he knows he should not be going down. As a result, his daughter drinks alcohol, and his son engages in a fight set up by the same friend.

The film underlines the fundamental need to let go of our former selves and embrace our current obligations, especially as parents.
