WARNING: Not for young children unless you want an awkward talk with them.
There comes a time in every parent's life when the harsh reality hits -- their child is growing up. And with that realization comes an event, a moment, faced with fear and trepidation, when said parent takes time from their busy day to have a special chat with their child, a talk if you will. And as with all parenting moments when dads are in charge, it goes horribly, horribly wrong.
The comedic slice-of-life short THE TALK is about such a parenting moment mishap. Directed under the visionary creative eye of JOE OTTING, and acted by the immensely talented JOHN HOOGENAKKER (Public Enemies, Empire) and lovable rising star ISABELLA CROVETTI-CRAMP (Joy, Colony) it is a cautionary tale of the pitfalls of parenting -- of epic proportions -- and reminds us that life is not always as it seems.
