A meager apology tests a woman's fortitude to forgive. “Squirrel,” by director Alex Kavutskiy, is a masterfully-crafted cringe comedy about the unlikely intersection of two L.A. residents who must come to terms with a new reality and one another. As their scenario unfolds, Noreen and Patrick, played brilliantly by Andrea Rosen and Max Jenkins, search for the right words or the right actions. Except there are none. It’s best not to say much about the plot, but I’ll just say it revolves heavily around an obscure quote from the 2001 comedy, “Rat Race” starring Whoopi Goldberg. We featured Kavutskiy previously with his 6 part series, “Alex Kavutskiy’s Guide to Filmmaking,” and as one half of the directing duo responsible for “Sound Speeds.” (16 minutes). Writer/Director/Producer: Alex Kavutskiy. Starring Andrea Rosen, Max Jenkins, Ted Tremper, Kati Rediger, and Clay Tatum. Director of Photography: Ryan Thomas. Production Designer: Ester Song Kim. Editor: Clay Tatum. Composer: Jason Martin Castillo. Co-Producer: Sean M. O'Brien.
