A short with a few recognizable faces, Two People He Never Saw stars Kevin Corrigan (Uncle Eddie on Grounded for Life) and Nick Sandow (prison councilor Joe Caputo in Orange is the New Black). Corrigan also directs the picture based on a short story by early 20th century journalist, John McNutley.
The short’s charm is its simplicity. Two men walk through New York, enter a bar, and talk about Christmas. One claims that what he wants for Christmas is to take two people to dinner, a woman who used to live next door to him in a rented room and a man who saved him when he was injured in the war, both of whom he never saw face-to-face.
The acting and story telling are strong and while nothing much really happens in the film, it delivers a memorable message about absorbing life's smallest details.
