Our time is up

Writer director Rob Pearlstein created a completely endearing 15 minute short film called Our Time is Up about a therapist who discovers he has six weeks to live. It’s wonderfully produced and even got nominated for an Oscar in 2006.

To be fair, it’s initially a bit reliant on some rather tired clich√©s about patients and therapists, but despite itself, it’s disarmingly warm and funny.

The writing is excellent, wrapping up what could have been a series of short sketches into a gently poignant and thought-provoking story.
