SELL YOUR BODY is a horror-comedy about a med school dropout who is clawing her way out of crippling debt by luring a couple seeking a threesome on a dating app.
More short films, kiddies! Today we have SELL YOUR BODY, written and directed by Jaanelle Yee.
Our hero, Hannah (Nadira Foster-Williams) is a med school drop-out. Hey, it happens. Super expensive, super stressful, not everyone makes it, you know?
Hannah is student debt up to her eyeballs and need a a quick and easy way out.She’s been working as a bartneder but its just not doing the gig. Her parents don’t know she quit, and they never planned beyond “be successful and pay it off then” so….
Hannah has a plan.
She meets with a couple (Pauline Sherrow, Menuhin Hart) on a dating app who are looking to add a third. You can guess what she has in mind.
But they are a really sweet couple though and Hannah starts to second guess this plan.
This was a lot of fun, you guys. A lot of first person camera work makes it feel real, and the characters are really likeable. Not a lot of gore, really, but that doesn’t take away from the humor of the film.
I really enjoyed this one.
