Production Description

Casting "Cheap Medicine," a short class film for NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Synopsis: "Told non-linearly, it is the story of downtrodden middle-aged man George, who is contacted by Julia, an old flame. She tells him that she had a son after a drunken union with George almost twenty years ago, and that he is dying of a terminal illness. The film evokes powerful themes of futility, loneliness and nihilism but ultimately ends on a redemptive note. It has minimal dialogue and offers an exciting opportunity for veteran actors to display difficult emotions using facial expressions and body language."
