Discover Kuriositas

Last year seventeen year old Tom Holland won the Hollywood Spotlight Award, the National Board of Review’s award for “Breakthrough Actor”, the London Film Critics Circle Award for “Young British Performer of the Year” not to mention the Young Artist Award for “Best Leading Actor in a Feature Film”. He was, furthermore, included in Screen International’s “UK Stars of Tomorrow – 2012” and in Variety’s “Youth Impact Report 2012”. No pressure then.

If his face is still not familiar to you then you may remember him starring alongside Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts in 2012's tsunami dram The Impossible. Although he has a number of major projects coming up this year and next, including How I Live Now and Locke, it is good to see an up and coming young actor opting to support independent filmmaking by taking the plunge in to what is, more or less, a talking head. Moments is a simple but moving short film about a young man saying his last farewells to his girlfriend, and speaking of the precious times they shared together, perhaps without realising that they would come to an end all too soon. We shouldn’t forget Molly Marodeen here, who makes the very most of her role as the girlfriend in a coma.

Moments was directed, filmed and produced by Lloyd Cook. Cook is a freelance filmmaker from London. He is currently studying at the BRIT School, an independent, state funded City College for the Technology of the Arts (which probably makes him still in his teens so hats off to him for such confident directing).
