The Wraith of Cobble Hill

[I recommend just clicking through to YouTube and going fullscreen to watch the video.  As convenient as Blogger's YouTube-embedding thing is, the resultant player is just ridiculously tiny.]

I've worked at a small movie theatre since 2005.  Most years we play the Oscar Nominated Short Films in the weeks leading up to the Academy Awards.  Of all the films I've seen over the course of five Februaries (I lived in Georgia during Feb 2009), the one I remember best of all is this one: The Wraith of Cobble Hill.

In true the-Academy-doesn't-know-what-the-hell-it's-doing fashion, this film wasn't even nominated--it made it into the program as a "Highly Commended" film.

Anyway, it's a terrific film and I'm guessing 98% of people have never seen it.  So here it is now, still breaking my heart after all these years.
