Thanks to actor Neil Hobbs’ understanding of the multi-faceted Wikki, we find a thoughtful and loyal man beneath his rough exterior.

Neil Hobbs as Wikki is all man of the people, practical and brave.

Neil Hobbs as Michael gives one of the most striking performances I’ve seen this year throughout the films I have reviewed.

 

It isn’t surprising that he has won awards for his performance in this short. His ability to express such deep-seated emotions is beyond spectacular — as Michael describes the day he lost his daughter, the showcase of pure despair and desire to have her back in his arms again shines through in a natural, breaking beauty. These emotions hang heavy in the air, making the situation feel entirely factual; empathy, as a viewer, quickly rises as a result of Hobbs’ otherworldly acting power. Every feeling laced in his words and displayed on his face is soaked up by the audience, immediately creating a personal relationship between the character and the viewers. Trust me when I say that this connection refuses to break even after watching.
