Of all the Oscar Nominated Live Action Shorts, Stutterer may be the very best. At only 12 minutes, Stutterer profoundly moved me. This is a light, beautiful, and confident film that is genuinely inspiring. Few features get into the mind of their characters the way this short does. The performances, craft, and direction are top notch. It may not hold the weight of some of the other nominees, but it may be the best.
