This short film was part of the Oscars 2016 live action package, and it was one of two that were simply overwrought with too much emotion. While I thought the director revealed the father's ulterior motives in a clever way, the overall effect is rather disturbing and uninteresting.
At 30 minutes, Everything Will Be Okay is a bit long but worthy of it's nomination and acclaim. This is a heavy film with a strong premise and solid direction. The performances are brilliant across the board. It's a devastating film that explores isolation, desperation, loneliness, and family. For a short film, the material would have been better suited for a feature but still, this is a fantastic short film.
