Fred - 7 Day Rental


27min   |  Language: English

Director: Alexander Jeremy

Writer: Alexander Jeremy

Starring: Nathan Gordon, Susie Kimnell, Shaun Prendergast


Fred is described on its own Twitter page as being “a short film about grief, obsession and our ghosts.” I’m not so sure. I mean, it has all those things in it, sure, but I don’t know if that’s what it’s really about. A lot is going on in Fred: a lot to consider. And I’ll be damned if I can tell you precisely what. But I do know one thing...I really like it!


The confusion starts from the beginning: who is our lead character? Is it Lily (Susie Kimnell), the young woman who’s recently lost her partner James and with whom we begin the film; is it the titular Fred (Samuel Woodhams), a somewhat shady character with a flair for theatrics: or is it both? For my money, it’s both. Woodhams is possibly onscreen for longer and is, arguably, a more memorable character. But it’s with Kimnell’s Lily that we begin the film and really bond with. However you look at it, the juxtaposition of both characters is pitch-perfect.
